Product Details


“Thank goodness for this humane, civilized and morally brave book. It speaks important truths which these days are much too rarely heard.”
—Peter Oborne

“A powerful call to address the empathy deficit and intellectual poverty which underlies the ‘obsessive Islamophobia’ of much French public discourse. Noting that Islamophobia now performs the cultural function once assigned to anti-Semitism, For the Muslims is a polemic against indifference. Plenel resurrects France’s heritage of critical thought to call on his fellow citizens and others to develop a competing imaginary to the one established by rampant xenophobia.”
—Priyamvada Gopal

“An important book about one of the most pressing issues facing modern Europe. Insightful, historically grounded and detailed, it’s required reading.”
—Murtaza Hussain

“An urgent and necessary warning cry against hatred and the politics of fear and indifference that fuels it. From the Dreyfus affair to the aftermath of the Paris attacks of 2015, Plenel shows how the normalization of a far-right narrative of rejection, exclusion and otherness will have consequences for us all.”
—Simon Hooper
