"Islamophobia and the Law brings together leading legal scholars in the United States to explore the emergence and rise of Islamophobia since the 9/11 terror attacks. It is the first book to focus on the use of the law to promulgate Islamophobia through state policies and institutions, and also to authorize private discrimination by constructing Muslims and Islam as perpetually alien and suspicious. The volume addresses Islamophobia in race, immigration and citizenship, and criminal law and national security in the use of courts to advance anti-Muslim projects and in law and society"-- Provided by the publisher.
