Synopsis

Medina Tenour Whiteman stands at the margins of whiteness and Islam. An Anglo-American born to Sufi converts, she feels perennially out of place-not fully at home in Western or Muslim cultures. In this searingly honest memoir, Whiteman contemplates what it means to be an invisible Muslim, examining the pernicious effects of white Muslim privilege and exploring what Muslim identity can mean the world over-in lands of religious diversity and cultural insularity, from Andalusia, Bosnia and Turkey to Zanzibar, India and Iran. Through her travels, she unearths experiences familiar to both Western Muslims and anyone of mixed heritage: a life-long search for belonging and the joys and crises of inhabiting more than one identity.

About the Publisher

Hurst & Company

Hurst is an independently owned non-fiction publisher based in central London, across the road from the British Museum in the heart of Bloomsbury. Among our authors are Gerard Prunier, Christophe Jaffrelot, Faisal Devji, David Kilcullen, Alex Strick van Linschoten and Felix Kuehn, Stephen Ellis, Paul Lendvai, Sir David Omand and Ziauddin Sardar. We have also published several books on behalf of MSF in London and Paris. Christopher Hurst founded C. Hurst & Co. (Publishers) Ltd. in 1969, his primary aim being to publish scrupulously edited and produced books on subjects close to his heart rather than to build a commercial empire. Christopher’s interests were eclectic, and they featured in his list from the outset, ranging from African studies, the plight of dissidents in the Cold War, the history of Scandinavia, the Muslim periphery, the Far North and anthropology.
