  1. this is an important contribution on what it means to be in-group vs. out-group in post 9/11 America. Would recommend this book to anyone looking to better understand the experiences of what it was like for Muslim Americans in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

  2. Very good at understanding backing up impressions with facts. The first three chapters read like a valid philosophical argument. At last some real data to help understand the pain people feel when they are scapegoated. Ms. Peek’s ability to tell a story with emotional depth made me feel the pain of 9/11 all over again and then she helped me to understand the pain innocent Muslims have gone through here in the land of the innocent until proven guilty.
    I recommend this book.
