       public sphere? -- The "virtual umma": collective 
       identities in cyberspace --Islamic websites: divergent

520    This book analyzes the discourses and deliberations in the
       discussion forums of three of the most visited Islamic 
       websites. In doing so, itexplores the potential impact of 
       the Islamic public sphere, and the re-configuration of the
       'virtual umma' (Islamic community) online, on thecreation 
       of multiple identities and resistances, which manifest 
       themselves through various Islamic sites, producing 
       varying degrees of consensus, divergence, and negotiation 
       in multiple contexts and across different discourses. The 
       book also investigates the extent to which these Islamic 
       websites have provided avenue for Muslims to freely engage
       in vibrant deliberations and constructive discussions 
       among themselves, as well as with 'Others', i.e., non-
       Muslims, about various political, economic, religious and 
       social issues
