"Due to the breadth of the topics dealt with, the two anthologies [Islamophobia and Islamic glorification] are an excellent handset if you want to deal with questions of Islamophobia and criticism of Islam from time to time." per FUTURE, 3-2011

"[...] a valuable contribution to a familiar but not very well understood debate, which is usually conducted in public with" strong opinions but clueless "[...]" S + F - Sicherheit und Frieden, 2-2011

"All in all, this is a highly instructive, carefully compiled, scientific book that is largely sufficient and also easy to read, which addresses a topic whose relevance will be of importance for a long time and has received too little attention so far." ZAG - Anti-Racist Magazine 56-2010
