The Islamophobia Industry: How the Right Manufactures Fear of Muslims

£14.99

Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

"The Islamophobia Industry is a disturbing account of the rising tide of Islamophobia sweeping through the United States and Europe.

Nathan Lean takes us through a world of conservative bloggers, right-wing talk show hosts, evangelical religious leaders and politicians, all united in their quest to exhume the ghosts of 9/11 and convince their compatriots that Islam is the enemy. Lean uncovers their scare tactics, reveals their motives and exposes the ideologies that drive their propaganda machine.

Situating Islamophobia within a long history of national and international phobias, The Islamophobia Industry challenges the narrative of fear that has for too long dominated discussions about Muslims and Islam." – Pluto Press

"Islamophobia is not only about ignorance and fear. Some people purposefully nurture it and use it as a political strategy. Nathan Lean's book is essential for anyone who wants to understand the rationale behind those who foster this new racism against Muslims." – Tariq Ramadan, Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies, Oxford University and author of The Quest for Meaning

Second edition, with new material on the Trump campaign and presidency, tracking the rise to power of some of the Islamophobia Industry's most extreme figures.

Nathan Lean is Editor-In-Chief of Aslan Media and a contributing writer at PolicyMic. He is the co-author of Iran, Israel, and the United States: Regime Security vs. Political Legitimacy (2011). 

Pluto Press, 2017.
