iMuslims Reviews

"iMuslims will be welcomed by all who want to understand the impact of the Internet on Islam and the Muslim world today. Gary Bunt, leading expert on Islam, provides a fascinating picture of the Internet as a vehicle for transformation of mainstream Islam as well as a propaganda and recruitment tool for militants." John L. Esposito, Georgetown University, co-author of Who Speaks for Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think

"The hundreds of examples included in iMuslims will undoubtedly be most useful to those unfamiliar with the virtual landscape of ever expanding CIEs [Cyber Islamic Environments]." Roxanne D. Marcotte, MESA Review of Middle East Studies Volume 44 Number 1 Summer 2010

 

"... iMuslims is a great and much needed contribution to our understanding of the religion-technology interactions in diverse Muslim contexts. Its grand scope and empirical richness make it an indispensable source for any researcher dealing with the Internet, information and communication technology, and contemporary Islam." Vit Sisler, CyberOrient, Vol. 7, Iss. 1, 2013


““iMuslims: Rewiring the House of Islam” by Gary R. Bunt is a book I assign to my students. It’s a great resource for looking at the impact of the internet/social media on Muslims around the world. Gary looks at both how transformative online activity has been for Muslim debate and discussions – did you know you could perform a virtual Haj? – and the ways extremist groups have used such networking. I was so glad to see MuslimWakeup! mentioned.”   Mona Eltahawy, Blog, Ramadan Book Recommendations 2010 (day 27)



"With this eclectic monograph, Gary R. Bunt, a senior lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Wales, cements his reputation as the most prominent and prolific scholar of today’s “cyber-Islamic landscape.” Robert Rozehnal, Middle East Journal, Winter 2010



"A significant book for both religious studies and policy studies." Jon W. Anderson, coeditor of Reformatting Politics: Information Technology and Global Civic Society


"Bunt demonstrates an unparalleled command of the many and diverse manifestations of Islam on the Internet. Thoroughly comprehensive and up-to-date, iMuslims offers a wealth of examples throughout, allowing the reader to come away with a firm sense of the rich world of 'cyber-Islamic environments.'" Peter Mandaville, author of Global Political Islam

‘Bunt confirms his pre-eminence in the study of Islam and new information technologies with this incisive and timely i-Muslims. This work expertly examines how Muslim digitisation and “wiring” are likely producing new transformations in the understanding and practice of Islam, and importantly in the religious authority to interpret it, which go to the heart of the current critical debate over who speaks for Islam.’ James Piscatori

""iMuslims is the best overview of the Muslim Internet to date. It is up-to-date, comprehensive, and should be compulsory reading for students and scholars of Islam, media, and politics in the Middle East." Sune Haugbolle (Copenhagen University), H-Net



" ... for young super-surfers, as well as for practitioners in a growing field, it will be a valuable addition to the literature" Roger Hardy [BBC World Service], Journal of Islamic Studies



"iMuslims: Rewiring the House of Islam is an interesting and informative work, which is well worth reading." Greg Simons, Media, War & Conflict



"Pick up Gary Bunt’s “iMuslims: Rewiring the House of Islam” and learn that for every online al-Qaeda recruiter there are thousands more Muslims reforming Islam online." Mona Eltahawy, Time.com, Muslims Online Encourage Debate, Not Hate [video]



"Gary Bunt's perceptive study" Dominic Casciani, Times Literary Supplement



"... this superb study of Islam online..." Daniel Martin Varisco, Contemporary Islam: Dynamics of Muslim Life



"iMuslims is an excellent guide to the emergence of "specific forms of online Islam"" Ziauddin Sardar, The Independent
