New York-based scholar Arun Kundnani introduces his new book The Muslims are Coming! Islamophobia, Extremism, and the Domestic War on Terror.
Based on several years of research and reportage from Texas and New York to Yorkshire, it is the first comprehensive critique of counter-radicalization strategies.
Kundnani's previous book, The End of Tolerance: Racism in 21st Century Britain, was selected as a New Statesman book of the year in 2007. A former editor of the journal Race & Class, he now teaches at New York University.
“A bold new look at the much discussed issue of surveillance, documenting how it impacts the communities most affected—American and British Muslims. With incisive reporting from across the US and the UK, combined with trenchant analysis, Arun Kundnani captures what it feels like to be a ‘suspect population.” Deepa Kumar, author of Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire.
Registration and light refreshments will be in the foyer from 5:30 pm, followed by a talk and discussion with the author from 6:00 pm in Room 2.220
