Moore has written extensively about the practice of Islam in America and is the author of "Al-Mughtaribun: American Law and the Transformation of Muslim Life in the United States," a pioneering look at Muslim encounters with the American legal system. Her current research, a survey of American attitudes about immigration and civil liberties since the Sept. 11 attacks, is funded by the National Science Foundation.
