Muslim American Experience Bibliography

Muslims in America are in the public spotlight, and as a result, the demand for information and analysis on American Muslims has risen. In an effort to address this need, the Muslim American Experience Bibliography includes over 250 books focused on Muslims and Islam in the United States.


ISPU conducts objective, solution-seeking research that empowers American Muslims to develop their community and fully contribute to democracy and pluralism in the United States.
