In Un-Democratic Acts: New Departures for Dialogues in Society and Schools, the focus is on ideals of democracy and democratic leadership to promote passionate debate, critical thinking, and change. Each chapter utilizes the unique voice and experiences of the author to tackle topics that are often taboo and/or politicized for ratings or votes but seldom for progress and change. Rather than continuing the circular course of back and forth arguments whose beginning and end points are the same, the authors utilize their voice to invoke change and focus on solutions. While each chapter takes on a life of its own, the collective work embodies the purpose and challenge that today’s leadership faces from a variety of perspectives. Most importantly these concepts are intended to create dissonance and divergence, a moving away from the typical and usual ways of doing, to break down the status quo thinking that dominates the related fields of academia and schooling. Do we accept the status quo and work to find our niche within the system? Or, do we hold ourselves and others accountable to truly honor the founding principles of freedom and equality for all as professed in the United States Constitution? In Un-Democratic Acts: New Departures for Dialogues in Society and Schools, the editors create a space in which imagining the possibility of a democratic and just society where all individuals are truly respected and treated fairly is the American way.

In order for America to remain a wonderful place, we must continually teach the keys of America's greatness. More than just a civics book or a collection of quotes, The American Way teaches all aspects of American culture and all the keys to America's greatness. This book explains these concepts in such a way that anyone can understand, regardless of age or background. Although teaching the American tradition is not necessarily new, writing and teaching on this subject has been weak in the past thirty years. America is not teaching civics anymore, nor does America teach proper history. In addition, many immigrants do not properly understand America. This book exists to fill that void. If you understand America, then you can use this book to help teach those who don't understand. If you have not been taught properly about America, then this book may open your eyes. If you want other nations to have what we have, then sharing this book with people of other nations will assist them in understanding the keys to our success. Regardless of your particular circumstances, if you want greater personal success and better communities, then you should learn and share The American Way.

With Islamophobia on the rise in the US since 9/11, Muslims remain the most misunderstood people in American society. Taking as its point of departure the question of the compatibility of Islam and democracy, this book examines Muslims’ sense of belonging in American society. Based on extensive interview data across seven states in the US, the author explores the question of what it means to be American or un-American amongst Muslims, offering insights into common views of community, culture, and wider society. Through a combination of interviewees’ responses and discourse analysis of print media, Muslim Americans also raises the question of whether media coverage of the issue might itself be considered ‘un-American’. An empirically grounded study of race and faith-based relations, this book undertakes a rigorous questioning of what it means to be American in the contemporary US. As such, it will appeal to scholars of sociology and political science with interests in race, ethnicity, religion and national identity.
