Edward E. Curtis IV is one of the most important scholars of Islam in the
United States. This slim volume is a welcome addition to his work, and
should be required reading for all who are interested in the place of Muslims
within the history of America. One also wishes that the book be read
widely by American Muslims. As the latter day prophet, Bob Marley, once
sang about other soldiers in the Americas, “If you know your history/ Then you would know where you’re coming from.” Curtis’ book helps us, as
American Muslims, to learn about our own history in our country.
