Summary
This book shares accounts of public and private discrimination involving turbaned Sikhs in America since September 11, 2001, investigates the American legal remedies available to those affected by discriminatory conduct, and compares these remedies to those in other Western societies. It offers a sharp analysis of the legal battles fought by Sikhs in post-9/11 America, and by extension the difficulties many minority groups have faced in protecting their civil liberties in times of war
