This self-curated volume brings together a number of my writings about Islamophobia from across the past two decades. Compiled thematically around the topics of politics, women and social issues this volume – a second will focus on history, multiculturalism and the far-right – seeks to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of a broad range of social, political and cultural issues relating to the phenomenon of Islamophobia. The contents list is shown below:

CHAPTER 1

CHAPTER 17

CHAPTER 18

Relevant for today as indeed they will be for the future, the two volumes will support those looking to:

better understand what is meant by Islamophobia and its manifestations;

better question and challenge those who seek to perpetuate and disseminate Islamophobic messages and meanings;

prompt conversations and discussions about just how dangerous and insidious Islamophobia is and more importantly, has the potential to be; and,

think through how we can best collectively and collaboratively work towards tackling Islamophobia and all other forms of discrimination, bigotry and hate.
