Since September 11, 2001 Muslim Americans have been under intense scrutiny most often for reasons related to national security. This has left other aspects of the Muslim American political experience unexamined. This book explores the development of a Muslim American Environmental Ethic and its implications for the social and political life for contemporary Muslims in the United States. Using semi structured interviews, lectures from prominent Muslim activists, and visits to a Muslim community center, it focuses on the contemporary Muslim understanding of environmentalism, their practices of environmentalism, and what this means for their political and social status here in the United States. This work contributes to research on an unique aspect of Muslim American politics and social behavior and the intersection of religious beliefs and the environmental movement.
