From political leaders and human rights activists to rap musicians
and NBA basketball stars, this diverse collection of profiles
documents the contributions of fifty male and fifty female Muslims
to a wide variety of different fields and professions. As an
exploration and celebration of what it means to be a Muslim today,
it offers a colourful and vibrant counterpoint to the stereotypes
of religious fundamentalists and masked suicide bombers that have
become all too commonplace in Western representations of
Islam."Notable Muslims" is unique among works of a similar nature
in its contemporary focus; eighty-five of the one hundred figures
profiled are alive today, and many have been interviewed personally
by Natana Delong-Bas for this project. With a complete set of
references and web links for every profile and indispensable
resource for students and teachers and a rich source of inspiration
for all those committed to building bridges of interfaith and
intercultural understanding in the modern world.
