Read full description of the books:



Cultural Writing. Biography and memoir. In his quest for an indigenous "American Islam," Michael Muhammad Knight embarked on a series of interstate odysseys. Traveling 20,000 miles by Greyhound in sixty days, he squatted in run-down mosques, was detained at the U.S.-Canadian border with a trunkload of Shi'a literature, crashed Islamic Society of North America conventions, and hunted down the truth of the Nation of Islam mystery-man, W.D. Fard. In the course of his adventures Knight sorted out his own relationship to Islam on his journey from punk provocateur to a recognized voice in the community, and watched first-hand the collapse of a liberal Islamic dream, the Progressive Muslim Union. Taking a unique perspective on Islam's intersection with race, gender, and Americanization, BLUE-EYED DEVIL offers a brutally honest but ultimately compassionate look at the marginal underground of Islamic America.
