This book is an anthology of essays written by both Muslim Scholars and Grassroots Activists. During the Spring of 2015 I read the book "Who Speaks For Islam" by John L. Esposito & Dalia Mogahed. Esposito and Mogahed's book was based on a Gallop World Poll which makes an attempt to give the opinions of the Muslim World's silent majority. This book, Who Speaks for the Muslims in America, attempts to give some of the recent history of the Muslims that is not normally conveyed in the highly publicized books written by Muslims or at Islamic conferences.

This article provides a discursive analysis of content published in the Berwick Leader, a local newspaper in Melbourne, Victoria, on a proposed and approved mosque in the suburb of Doveton. The mosque development was instigated by the Afghan Mosque Project Committee in 2012 and approved by Casey Council in 2013. Catch the Fire Ministries, led by politician Daniel Nalliah from the Rise Up Australia Party led opposition to the mosque project, appealing to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT). The opposition centred on the mosque's physical location next to Catch the Fire Ministries' proposed church, however the formal appeal was dropped when the church purchased land elsewhere. Database research returned 23 published items from the Berwick Leader relating to the mosque in Green Street, Doveton. Part of the discourse analysis reveals inclusive publishing decisions in terms of community input, with thirteen letters to the editor about the controversial project being selected for publication. Significantly though, the voices identified as being excluded from news reports are those of the Afghan Mosque Project Committee, the representative body for the local Muslim community. It may be argued this form of social exclusion, embedded in journalistic practice, reflects discourses of Orientalism, whereby the Muslim community is relegated to an inferior, strange and threatening 'other' in local media reporting. By being denied a voice and right of reply in the reporting on the proposed mosque, the authors posit that the Berwick Leader denied the Muslim community of Doveton recognition and validation as social subjects.

Analysts and pundits from across the American political spectrum describe Islamic fundamentalism as one of the greatest threats to modern, Western-style democracy. Yet very few non-Muslims would be able to venture an accurate definition of political Islam. Mohammed Ayoob's The Many Faces of Political Islam thoroughly describes the myriad manifestations of this rising ideology and analyzes its impact on global relations.

This book brings together scholars with expertise in modern Islamic thought and practice to evaluate the claim that we are witnessing something tantamount to an 'Islamic Reformation, ' by assessing the character and impact of various reformist trends in the Middle East and North Africa. Each chapter also addresses the question of the appropriateness and usefulness of comparisions between 'Christian' and 'Islamic' or 'Western' and 'Eastern' reformations

The scholarly study of Islam has become ever more insular and apologetic. Academic Islamic Studies has tried to maintain a focus on truth, authenticity, experience and meaning and has effectively avoided discussion of larger social, cultural and ideological issues. Many scholars of Islam have presented themselves to their colleagues, the media and the public as the interpreters of Islam and have done so with an interpretation which tends, almost universally, to the liberal and egalitarian. The ignorance and hostility which the Islamic faith has faced since 9/11 has partly necessitated the taking of such a position. But, as Theorizing Islam argues, the issue remains that only one interpretation of Islam is generally being presented and, as with any interpretation, this has its own assumptions. The aim of Theorizing Islam is to explore the potential for a fuller, more honest and more sophisticated approach to both theory and methodology in the academic study of Islam.
