Moving between the United States and Europe, Norton provides a fresh perspective on iconic controversies, from the Danish cartoon of Muhammad to the murder of Theo van Gogh. She examines the arguments of a wide range of thinkers - from John Rawls to Slavoj Žižek. And she describes vivid everyday examples of ordinary Muslims and non-Muslims who have accepted each other and built a common life together. Ultimately, Norton provides a new vision of a richer and more diverse democratic life in the West, one that makes room for Muslims rather than scapegoating them for the West's own anxieties.

In a world of ISIS and an immeasurable political mess from Alberta to the subcontinent, this book should bring Islam closer to the public than they ever thought comfortable. I can't tell whether this book is a more important read for westerns wary of Islam or Muslims hesitant with the expression of their faith. Westerners will enjoy a comforting, realistic read far away from fantastic news vomits. Muslims will enjoy an enlightening read of their own religion in a light they never saw shining.
