Servants of Allah presents a history of African Muslims, following them from West Africa to the Americas. Although many assume that what Muslim faith they brought with them to the Americas was quickly absorbed into the new Christian milieu, as Sylviane A. Diouf demonstrates in this meticulously-researched, groundbreaking volume, Islam flourished during slavery on a large scale. She details how, even while enslaved, many Muslims managed to follow most of the precepts of their religion. Literate, urban, and well-traveled, they drew on their organization, solidarity and the strength of their beliefs to play a major part in the most well-known slave uprisings. But for all their accomplishments and contributions to the history and cultures of the African Diaspora, the Muslims have been largely ignored. Servants of Allah—a Choice 1999 Outstanding Academic Title—illuminates the role of Islam in the lives of both individual practitioners and communities, and shows that though the religion did not survive in the Americas in its orthodox form, its mark can be found in certain religions, traditions, and artistic creations of people of African descent. This 15th anniversary edition has been updated to include new materials and analysis, a review of developments in the field, prospects for new research, and new illustrations.

The Statue of Liberty--depicted on a roadside billboard--did not carry her customary torch and tablet. Instead, she shielded her eyes from words that towered beside her, words that highway drivers could not possibly avoid: "We are no longer a Christian nation." Underneath was the name of the man who spoke them, the nation's president, Barack Obama. He had made the original statement--"Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation, at least not just"--four years earlier. Since then those words had appeared, in one form or another, not just on billboards but in a host of other venues, a visible symbol of America's divide over religion and politics. In Faith in the New Millennium, a group of leading historians explores the shifting role of religion in American politics in the age of Obama, shedding new and fascinating light on the interplay of faith and politics. Each of the sixteen contributors examines a contemporary issue, controversy, or policy through a historical lens. In an age of the 24-hour-news-cycle, where complexity is often buried under bluster, these essays make a powerful case for understanding the stories behind the news. They tackle such topics as immigration reform, racial turmoil, drone wars, foreign policy, and the unstoppable rise of social media. Taken together, they reveal how faith is shaping modern America, and how modern America is shaping faith.

Eine Geschichte von Verblendung, Schuld und der Hoffnung auf Versöhnung Milwaukee, Ende der siebziger Jahre: Hayat ist zehn Jahre alt, als Mina, die Jugendfreundin seiner Mutter, aus Pakistan nach Amerika kommt. Zwischen der schönen wie klugen Frau und dem verschlossenen Jungen entsteht eine innige Beziehung. Mina ist ihrem neuen Leben gegenüber aufgeschlossen, fühlt sich ihrer Kultur und ihrem Glauben aber weiter eng verbunden. So ist sie es auch, die Hayat mit dem Koran vertraut macht. Doch niemand, am allerwenigsten Mina selbst, ahnt, welch tiefgreifenden Einfluss dies auf den Teenager hat. Als Mina sich in Nathan Wolfsohn verliebt, sieht Hayat seine Welt und alles, was ihm wichtig scheint, bedroht. Aus Eifersucht und Angst begeht er einen ungeheuerlichen Verrat. Zu spät begreift er, welche Katastrophe er damit über diejenigen heraufbeschwört, die er am meisten liebt. Mit diesem bewegenden Familiendrama ist Ayad Akhtar ein überaus beeindruckender Debütroman gelungen. Klar und einfühlsam zeichnet er seine Figuren, ihre innere Zerrissenheit, ihre Sehnsüchte und Enttäuschungen. Er erzählt von Verblendung und Schuld, ohne zu verurteilen – und von der Hoffnung, dass Versöhnung möglich ist.

«Das beste Sachbuch des Jahres.» TIME Die Entdeckung Amerikas war für das Leben auf unserem Planeten das folgenreichste Ereignis seit dem Aussterben der Dinosaurier. Denn: Millionen Jahre waren die Hemisphären weitgehend voneinander isoliert gewesen. Mit Kolumbus traten sie in einen Austausch. Menschen und Pflanzen, Tiere und Krankheiten gelangten per Schiff in neue Lebensräume und schufen eine Welt, in der nichts blieb, wie es einmal gewesen war. Das hatte auch gravierende politische Konsequenzen: Der «kolumbische Austausch» trug mehr als alles andere dazu bei, dass Europa zur Weltmacht aufstieg und China verdrängte. Charles C. Mann zeichnet ein spannendes Panorama dieser Vorgänge, das Kontinente und Jahrhunderte umfasst. Ein großartiges Lesevergnügen für alle Wissensdurstigen! «Herausragend.» The New York Times «Ein faszinierendes und vielschichtiges Buch, das auf vorbildliche Weise sprechende Fakten mit gutem Geschichtenerzählen vereint.» The Washington Post
