Most widely held works by Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad
Islam, gender, & social change( )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 2,839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays collected in this book place this issue in its historical context and offer case studies of Muslim societies from North Africa to Southeast Asia. These fascinating studies shed light on the impact of the Islamic resurgence on gender issues in Iran, Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, Oman, Bahrain, the Philippines, and Kuwait. Taken together, the essays reveal the wide variety that exists among Muslim societies and believers, and the complexity of the issues under consideration. They show that new things are happening for women across the Islamic world, and are in many cases being initiated by women themselves. The volume as a whole militates against the stereotype of Muslim women as repressed, passive, and without initiative, while acknowledging the very real obstacles to women's initiatives in most of these societies."--Jacket

Muslim communities in North America by Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad( )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a look at Muslim life and institutions forming in North America. It considers the range of Islamic life in North America with its different racial-ethnic and cultural identities, customs, and religious orientations. Issues of acculturation, ethnicity, orthodoxy, and the changing roles of women are brought into focus. The authors provide insight into the lives of recent immigrants who are asking what is Islamically appropriate in a non-Muslim environment. Contrasts are drawn between Sunni and Shi'i groups, and attention is given to the activities of some Sufi organizations. The growing Islamic community among African-American Muslims is examined, including the followers of Warith Deen Muhammed and the sectarians identified with black power, such as the Nation of Islam, Darul Islam, and the Five Percenters. The authors document the challenges and issues that American Muslims face, such as prejudice and racism; pressure from overseas Muslims; dress and education; the influence of Islamic revivalism on the development of the community in this country; and the maintenance of Muslim identity amidst the pressure for assimilation

Muslims on the Americanization path?( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 1,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are now more Muslims in America than in Kuwait, Qatar, and Libya combined. It is the second largest religion in France and the third in Britain, Germany, and North America. Leaving aside immigration and conversion, birth rate alone ensures that in the first part of the twenty-first century Islam will replace Judaism as the second largest religion in the United States. Like all religious and ethnic minorities in America, Muslims must confront a host of difficult questions. Can they become part of a pluralistic American society without sacrificing their identity? Can Muslims be Muslims in a state that is not governed by Islamic law? Will the American legal system protect Muslim religious and cultural differences? Is there a contradiction between demanding equal rights and insisting on maintaining a distinctively separate identity? In this wide-ranging volume, fourteen distinguished scholars take an in-depth look at these issues and examine the varied responses and opinions of the Muslim community. --Publisher description
Not quite American? : the shaping of Arab and Muslim identity in the United States by Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Becoming American? : the forging of Arab and Muslim identity in pluralist America by Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Countless generations of Arabs and Muslims have called the United States "home." Yet while diversity and pluralism continue to define contemporary America, many Muslims are viewed by their neighbors as painful reminders of conflict and violence. In this concise volume, renowned historian Yvonne Haddad argues that American Muslim identity is as uniquely American it is for as any other race, nationality, or religion. Becoming American? first traces the history of Arab and Muslim immigration into Western society during the 19th and 20th centuries, revealing a two-fold disconnect between the cultures--America's unwillingness to accept these new communities at home and the activities of radical Islam abroad. Urging America to reconsider its tenets of religious pluralism, Haddad reveals that the public square has more than enough room to accommodate those values and ideals inherent in the moderate Islam flourishing throughout the country. In all, in remarkable, succinct fashion, Haddad prods readers to ask what it means to be truly American and paves the way forward for not only increased understanding but for forming a Muslim message that is capable of uplifting American society. -- Book Description

Islamic values in the United States : a comparative study by Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The religion of Islam is now an American phenomenon. Once thought to be primarily a way of life of the Arabs and a faith alien to the Judeo-Christian heritage of this country, it has grown to be one of the most prominent and rapidly-growing religious movements in America. This ethnography of immigrant Muslims considers five Northeastern communities in detail. Including numerous interviews with members of these communities, this investigation provides a highly personal look at what it means to be a believing, practicing Muslim in America at a time when Islam is under the critical scrutiny of international news. The authors describe the institutions and leadership of American Islam, Muslim law, and its applications in the American context, examining the kinds of problems that beset Muslims trying to observe the elements of their faith in a potentially difficult environment. Family life and the roles and relationships of men and women are thoroughly detailed as well."--From publisher
Educating the Muslims of America( )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the Muslim population in the United States continues to grow, Islamic schools are springing up across the nation's landscape. Education, both secular and religious, has always been of the greatest importance to the Muslim community in America. Muslims have made it clear that they want their children to have the best education possible at the same time that they are learning the essentials of their faith." "Especially since the events of September 11, many Americans have become concerned about the teaching going on behind the walls of these schools. The essays collected in this volume look behind those walls and discover both efforts to provide excellent instruction following national educational standards and attempts to inculcate Islamic values while protecting students from what are seen as the dangers of secularism and the compromising values of American culture." "This volume of collected essays deals with a wide range of issues challenging Muslim Americans as they seek a well-rounded religious education from adolescence to adulthood. Also explored are college-level education; the kinds of training being offered by Muslim chaplains in universities, hospitals, and prisons; and the ways in which Muslims are educating the American public in the face of hostility and prejudice. This timely volume is the first dedicated entirely to the neglected topic of Islamic education in the United States."--Jacket

Since its inception, the United States has defined itself as a nation of immigrants and a land of religious freedom. But following September 11, 2001 American openness to immigrants and openness to other beliefs have come into question. In a timely manner, Religion and Immigration provides comparative perspectives on Protestants, Catholics, Muslims and Jews entering the American scene. Will Muslims seek and receive inclusion in ways similar to Catholics and Jews generations before? How will new immigrant populations influence and be influenced by current religious communities? How do overlappi

Islamic law and the challenges of modernity by Symposium Arab Legal Systems in Transition( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since Europeans first colonized Arab lands in the nineteenth century, they have been pressing to have the area's indigenous laws and legal systems adhere to Western models. Although most Arab states now have national codes of law that reflect Western influence, fierce internal struggles regarding how to interpret Islamic law continue, particularly in the areas of gender and family. From different geographical and ideological points throughout the contemporary Arab world, Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad and Barbara Freyer Stowasser demonstrate the range of views on Islam's legal heritage in the region. For either law or religion classes, Islamic Law and the Challenges of Modernity provides the broad historical overview and particular examples needed to understand this contentious issue."--Jacket
