In Africana Islamic Studies, editors James L. Conyers and Abul Pitre have assembled a knowledgeable coterie of scholars on a diversity of issues pertinent to understanding Islam, both its domestic and global implications. I was reminded of Steven Barboza’s American Jihad, and Africana Islamic Studies brings additional depth to the subject and expands the religion’s historical importance via Elijah Muhammad and Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz).
