from Press News, posted 11/06/2009 - 12:18

A new review of Johan Fischer’s Proper Islamic Consumption has just been received. Writing in Asian Anthropology, Prof. Abdul Rahman Embong concludes:

[T]his book is an excellent study that is lucidly written, strongly informed by theory, rich in ethnography, and empirically grounded. It has blazed a new trail in employing the tools of both religious studies and cultural studies to dissect the complex subject of “proper Islamic consumption”. It is a must-read for researchers and students alike, especially those who want to pursue their study on the middle class, Islam and consumption.
