This chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about ideological encounter between Islam and African Americans. The book traces the history of the proto-Islamic black-nationalist spin-off movements of the early twentieth century through the rise and preponderance of orthodox Sunni Islam by the century's end. It attempts to explain the ideological dislocations and attempted adjustments that accompanied the shift in the basis of religious authority which followed the influx of Muslims from the Middle East and Asia after the repeal of the National Origins Act and the Asiatic Barred Zone in 1965.

Keywords:   Islam, African Americans, Sunni Islam, Islamic movement, National Origins Act, Asiatic Barred Zone
