Summary In Suburban Islam, Justine Howe explores the rise of ""third spaces, "" created by educated, middle-class American Muslims to challenge their exclusion from the American mainstream and to enact visions for American Islam different from those they encounter in their local mosques. Howe shows how third spaces have shaped not just the development of American Islam, but are also reshaping the rich religious landscape of America's suburbs
