This book is about the securitisation of Islam in the United States from the Bush to the Trump administration. It explores the ways in which the securitisation is justified and felt when president G.W Bush, Barack Obama and (even) President Donald J. Trump have often securitised through deception and covert language rather than by mobilizing a security grammar. This book contributes to the debate on islamophobia and the construction of Islam as a threat to the liberal order since the 11 September attacks. Its approach is innovative by connecting covert racism and the securitisation of minority groups, through what the book calls `indirect securitisation', and by introducing emotions and affect to securitisation studies. This book is of interest to a wide audience interested in Islamophobia in the US, security studies, the `emotions turn' in International Relations, and scholars interested in theories of language.
