Are Muslims Distinctive?

A Look at the Evidence

M. Steven Fish

  • The first book-length work that uses quantitative methods to address the big questions about whether, and how, the political behavior of Muslims is unique
  • Draws surprising conclusions about Muslims' religiosity, attitudes toward government, and proneness to political violence
  • Shifts the grounds of the debate from overheated rhetoric to fact-finding and hypothesis-testing
