The author of American Caliph comes to DC on Mon., Nov. 28th, at 7 p.m.!

Meet Shahan Mufti
Shahan Mufti’s American Caliph gives a full account of the largest ever hostage-taking on American soil and of the man who masterminded it. Informed by extensive archival research and access to hundreds of declassified FBI files, American Caliph is a riveting true-crime story that sheds new light on the disarray of the 1970s and its ongoing reverberations. (Read the Independent's recent review of American Caliph here.)

Shahan Mufti is chair of the Department of Journalism at the University of Richmond and a former daily news reporter for the Christian Science Monitor. He is the author of The Faithful Scribe: A Story of Islam, Pakistan, Family, and War, and his writing has appeared in Harper’s, the New York Times Magazine, the Atlantic, and the Nation, among other publications.
