About the Author

Rajeswary Ampalavanar Brown is an Emeritus Professor at the Royal Holloway College in London, UK.


'The title of this scholarly and detailed work promises an examination of Islam everywhere in Thailand, not just in the South. This is what we get in a book focused on Islamic charities and institutions affiliated to the mosque, including the operations of the waaf (Muslim religious foundation). [...] Perhaps the main virtue of Brown's book is that it enables us to see the Muslim South in a wider context. And the challenge to McCargo's thesis at least makes us test afresh our own assumptions about the situation.' - Barney Smith, Asian Affairs, July 2014
