In today's climate can they'talk back'without being defined as a moderate or radical? And, what do the conditions put on their political choices reveal about liberalism and its deep and historical relationship with racism? This timely work looks at ongoing debates and how they call for Muslims to engage in a'de-radicalisation'of their voice and identities. The author takes his lessons from Fanon and uses them to make sense of his many readings of Said's Orientalism. He reflects on the personal and scholarly difficulty of writing this very book. An autoethnography follows. It shows (rather than tells of) the felt demand to use a pleasing'Apollonian'liberalism. This approved language, however, erases a Muslim's ability to talk about the'Dionysian'more Asiatic parts of their faith and politics."@en ;
