Coming of Age in the War on Terror description

The shocking image of planes smashing into the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001 was a defining moment in the modern era. We now have a generation – Muslim and non-Muslim – who have grown up in the shadow of the War on Terror, with its associated Islamophobia, surveillance and suspicion. In her ambitious, rigorous and deeply compassionate new book, Coming of Age in the War on Terror, Randa Abdel-Fattah hears from the young people most affected by our polarised politics, providing important insight into their resilience, humour and heartbreak.
