Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0791425800, Paperback)Al-Mughtaribun explores the influence of American law on Muslim life in the United States. It examines pluralism and religious toleration in America, viewed from the vantage point offered by the experiences of Muslims in the United States, a significant and growing part of an increasingly pluralistic society. By tracing the historical shift in the consciousness of American Muslims, precipitated by their interactions with the legal institutions of the dominant culture, Moore demonstrates the transformative impact of law on a minority community seeking religious toleration. She treats issues of immigration and naturalization, civil rights, Black Muslims and the prisoners' rights movement, municipal zoning, and hate crimes legislation.
