As recently as the early 1970s, the United States typically made and received only 40 requests for international extradition per year. As the world has become “flatter”, there has been a concomitant explosion in transnational criminal activity to which the United States has had to respond. In 2008 alone, 589 people were extradited to it and many others extradited by it. The treatise is designed for prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges and academics. Written by the former Department of Justice official responsible for implementation of United States extradition statutes and treaties as it began designing the mechanisms to cope with the explosion of transnational criminal activity, it analyzes in detail the legal aspects of, and operation under, those statutes and treaties.

A History of Conversion to Islam in the United States, Volume 1: White American Muslims before 1975 is the first in-depth study of the thousands of white Americans who embraced Islam between 1800 and 1975. Drawing from little-known archives, interviews, and rare books and periodicals, Patrick D. Bowen unravels the complex social and religious factors that led to the emergence of a wide variety of American Muslim and Sufi conversion movements.

While some of the more prominent Muslim and Sufi converts—including Alexander Webb, Maryam Jameelah, and Samuel Lewis—have received attention in previous studies, White American Muslims before 1975 is the first book to highlight previously unknown but important figures, including Thomas M. Johnson, Louis Glick, Nadirah Osman, and T.B. Irving.
