Bridging Cultures Bookshelf - Muslim Journeys: A Selected Annotated Bibliography

Carla M. Caretto, Allison McGhee


The Bridging Cultures -Muslim Journeys grant was gifted from the NEH (National Endowment for the Humanities) to libraries throughout the United States to promote understanding between American and Arab culture, history and society. The items included in the grant are organized by six themes: American  Stories, Connected Histories, Literary Reflections, Pathways of Faith, Points of View and Art, Architecture and Film and contain 25 books and 4 films. The goal of the collection was to “help public audiences in the United States become more familiar with the people, places, history, faith and culture of Muslims around the world and within the U.S.” This annotated bibliography summarizes fifteen titles selected that may help scholars, students, librarians or general readers gain an understanding of the Muslim Journeys collection.
