"I loved and recommend this provocative book to all. This Harvard Divinity School professors portrayal of immigrant Muslims and Islamism in America challenged more of my preconceptions than anything Ive read in a while, and completely changed the way I see the veil from a symbol of oppression to 'a call for gender justice (of all things) and a call for equality for minorities.'"
