In this book a variety of Canadian Muslim voices address vital issues related to the question of living as Muslims in the Canadian social, legal, and political spaces. For example, what issues of integration and identity face young Muslims growing up in this country? Is there, in fact, a single Muslim identity? Has the Canadian government, under pressure due to the "war against terror," failed to safeguard the rights of young Muslims? How does Canada's tolerance of diverse cultures extend to the case of Muslims? What are the implications of the veiled voting legislation? Is worship in Islam compatible with the practice of science? The contributors to this important and timely volume include, Haroon Siddiqui, editor emeritus, The Toronto Star; Anver Emon, professor of law, University of Toronto; Carmela Murdocca, professor of sociology, York University, Toronto; Sheema Khan, columnist, The Globe and Mail; Ausma Khan, editor, Muslim Girl; Karim Karim, Director of Journalism and Communications, Carleton University, Ottawa; Anar Ali, author (fiction); Rukhsana Khan, author (children's books); Arif Babul, professor of astronomy, University of Victoria, British Columbia; Amin Malak, professor of English, Grant MacEwan College, Edmonton, Alberta.
