The religion of Islam and the mainstream Muslim majority have been conflated with the beliefs and actions of an extremist minority. The result was reflected in a USA Today/Gallup Poll which found substantial minorities of Americans admitting to negative feelings or prejudice against Muslims.The vital missing piece among the many voices weighing in on this question is the actual views of Muslim publics.Who Speaks for Islam? is about this silenced majority. It is the product of a mammoth research study undertaken over six years by the Gallup Organization. Gallup conducted tens of thousands of hour-long face to face interviews with residents of more than 35 predominantly Muslim nations. In totality we surveyed a sample representing over 90% of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims, making this the largest, most comprehensive study of contemporary Muslims ever done.

Synopsis:

Based on the largest ever study of its kind, this book is the first to present the fascinating findings of the Gallup Poll of the Muslim World. It is co-authored by a bestselling author, Georgetown University professor John L. Esposito and Dalia Mogahed, Gallup's executive director of Muslim studies.The horrific events of 9/11 dramatically intensified what many saw as an on-going conflict between the U.S. and parts of the Muslim world. Extremism has grown exponentially as Muslims and non-Muslims alike continue to be victims of global terrorism. Terrorist attacks have occurred from Morocco to Indonesia and from Madrid to London, as U.S.-led wars rage in Iraq and Afghanistan.As we face savage actions in a world that seems ever more dangerous and out of control, we are confronted daily by analysis from terrorism experts and pundits who see the religion of Islam as responsible for global terrorism. At the same time, terrorist groups like Al Qaeda beam messages throughout the world that demonize the West as the enemy of Islam, responsible for all the ills of the Muslim world.After collecting vast amounts of data representing the views of the world's Muslims, we asked the questions everyone is dying to hear answers to: What is at the root of anti-Americanism in the Muslim world?

Who are the extremists? Is democracy a desired construct among Muslims, and if so, what might it look like? What do Muslim women really want? With question in hand, we let the empirical evidence - the voices of a billion Muslims, not individual 'experts' or 'extremists', dictate the answer.
