New book from University of Chicago Press: Mucahit Bilici: Finding Mecca in America: How Islam Is Becoming an American Religion

 “A work of considerable originality, Mucahit Bilici offers a well crafted and insightful analysis of the complex process of integration that Muslim immigrants face in the United States since 9/11. Bilici’s look at Islam as a religion in the American system is rich and rewarding.” -José Casanova | Georgetown University

"Finding Mecca in America weaves social theory and concrete ethnography into a significant contribution on Muslims in the United States, illuminating broader questions about the integration of minority and immigrant groups along the way. This is an important work and a joy to read." -Eboo Patel | President, Interfaith Youth Core and author of Sacred Ground
