Description:
In a series of case studies from Western Europe, Australia and North America demonstrating the transnational character of Islamophobia, the authors explore contemporary intercultural conflicts using the concept of moral panic, revitalized for the era of globalization. Exploring various sites of conflict, this book considers the role played by 'moral 'entrepreneurs' in orchestrating popular xenophobia and in agitating for greater surveillance, policing and cultural regulation of those deemed a threat to the nation's security or imagined community. The essays examine the interpenetration of the global and the local in the West's cultural politics towards Islam, highlighting parallels in the responses of governments and in the worrying reversion to a politics of coercion and assimilation.
