Summary
"From the author of prize-winning Arrival City, a controversial and long-overdue rejoinder to the overblown fears of an Islamic threat that have spread throughout America and Europe and threaten our basic values. The July 2011 shooting spree in Norway shocked the world, especially when it emerged that the killer had written a 1,500-page manifesto denouncing the impact of Islam on Western society. While Anders Breivik was almost certainly insane, he was motivated by an extreme opposition to Islam that has pervaded segments of Western culture. In The Myth of the Muslim Tide, Doug Saunders offers a brave challenge to these ideas, debunking popular misconceptions about Muslims and their effect on the communities in which they live. He demonstrates how modern Islamophobia echoes historical responses to earlier immigrant groups, especially Jews and Catholics. Above all, he provides a set of concrete proposals to help absorb these newcomers and make immigration work. The most important trend of the twenty-first century will be a massive global migration to cities, much of it by Muslims. Rather than responding with fear and resentment, this book shows us how to benefit from this inevitable change." -- Publisher
