This book uncovers those who deal in the spread of the hatred of Muslims. From Donald Trump and his allies Steve Bannon and Newt Gingrich, to the rise of the Front National in France, websites like Breitbart and `liberal' anti-Muslim campaigners such as Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins.
Revealing a world of conservative bloggers, right-wing talk show hosts, evangelical religious leaders and politicians, The Islamophobia Industry uncovers their scare tactics, traces their sources of funding and exposes the ideologies that drive their lucrative propaganda machine.
