'Hashtag Islam'

Publishers Weekly, Faith Matters: Religion & Spirituality Spotlight 2018 refers to 'Hashtag Islam'

"Islam has grown in importance in both politics and religion in the U.S., and books that offer analyses, history, and cultural critiques of Islam have been plentiful in the past several years. But only a few head publishers’ lists this season, such as Hashtag Islam: How Cyber-Islamic Environments Are Transforming Religious Authority by Gary Bunt (Univ. North Carolina, out now), which adds to the press’s Islamic Civilization and Muslim Networks series. Bunt, a professor of Islamic studies at the University of Wales, also wrote the book iMuslims for the series."
