Reviews

'This is without a doubt the finest collection of essays on the anthropology of Islam available today. Kreinath has brought together a set of path breaking theoretical texts with some of the richest ethnographic accounts of Muslim societies produced by anthropologists. The result is the strongest demonstration to date of anthropology's unique contribution to our understanding of this religious tradition.' - Charles Hirschkind, University of California, Berkeley, USA 'This is a remarkable work that contains some of the classic and contemporary essays representing the ethnographic and conceptual issues within the anthropology of Islam arena. This fine collection will undoubtedly become the standard work for both research and teaching purposes. The volume provides an accessible sophisticated treatment of the field that will engage students and scholars who want to develop a more nuanced perspective and understanding of the Islamic world.' - Raymond Scupin, Lindenwood University, USA
