Twenty years ago, the image of burning copies of Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses held aloft by thousand-strong mobs of protestors became an internationally familiar symbol of anger and offence. Kenan Malik examines how the Rushdie affair transformed the debate worldwide on multiculturalism, tolerance and free speech, helped fuel the rise of radical Islam and pointed the way to the horrors of 9/11 and 7/7.

Review:

"'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 'A riveting political history of contemporary Britain... Impeccably researched, brimming with detail, yet razor-sharp in its argument.' Lisa Appignanesi, Independent"
