Reviews

"Mamdani strips open the lies, stereotypes, and easy generalizations on which U.S. policy toward the Muslim world is founded. Dismaying but essential reading." --J. M. Coetzee

"This provocative and thoughtful inquiry raises hard and serious questions. It is a valuable contribution to the understanding of some of the most important developments in the contemporary era." --Noam Chomsky

"Good Muslim, Bad Muslim is a brief, readable plea to Americans to stop listening to the shuck and jive about a 'clash of civilizations' and start learning some practical political history." --The Village Voice
