Praise

“A gripping account of how we went from burning books to bombs on buses. The Rushdie Affair has shaped all our lives. This book shows us how.”
Hanif Kureishi

“A thorough and highly readable history of the politics of the Rushdie affair and an important intervention in the current debate on freedom of expression.”
Monica Ali

“In tracing the legacy of the Rushdie Affair into our post-9/11 present, Malik marries the attributes of an investigative journalist and a political analyst. He challenges the cultural myths which have grown up during this period and sets out to slay their attendant monsters . . . A bracing analysis.”
–Lisa Appignanesi, The Independent

“In the slipstream of history. . . The Rushdie Affair wears the strange innocence of an ancient war. . . Kenan Malik’s From Fatwa to Jihad is an enthralling . . . attempt to place [it] in context.”
–Robert McCrum, The Observer

“An acute commentator on race and a staunch critic of multculturalism. . . The book asks some difficult but critical questions, and is not afraid to answer them . . . A powerful critique.”
New Humanist
