Featuring a discussion with Arun Kundnani, on his new book, “The Muslims Are Coming!” Arun Kundnani writes about race, Islamophobia, political violence, and surveillance. His latest book, “The Muslims are Coming! Islamophobia, extremism, and the domestic War on Terror” was published by Verso Books in March 2014.
“An incisive, scholarly, bold, and convincing critique of the never-ending ‘War on Terror,’ whose roots extend far beyond the tragedy of 9/11. An important work.”
Wajahat Ali, cohost of Al Jazeera America’s The Stream and author of The Domestic Crusaders
“A bold new look at the much discussed issue of surveillance, documenting how it impacts the communities most affected—American and British Muslims. With incisive reporting from across the US and the UK, combined with trenchant analysis, Arun Kundnani captures what it feels like to be a ‘suspect population.”
