Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire

From historical roots to ideological causes, Islamophobia is studied in a holistic, profound and serious way." - Tariq Ramadan, Oxford University


In response to the events of 9/11, the Bush administration launched a “war on terror” ushering in an era of anti-Muslim racism, or Islamophobia. However, 9/11 did not create the image of the "Muslim enemy." This book examines the historic relationship between Islamophobia and the agenda of empire-building.
