Yet another review of ‘Proper Islamic Consumption’

from Press News, posted 02/22/2011 - 17:14

 Johan Fischer’s Proper Islamic Consumption has attracted an impressive number of book reviews. Here is the latest (very positive) assessment of this innovative study.

‘Fischer’s ethnography is a valuable contribution to the growing literature on middle-class identity formation and the Islamic revival in Southeast Asia. The social insights and clear presentation in Proper Islamic Consumption make this a fitting addition to a graduate or undergraduate course on class and religion in postcolonial Southeast Asia.’ (Claire-Marie Hefner, Emory University, in American Anthropologist, Vol. 113, No. 1, March 2011)

Did I hear the words ‘course adoption’? Every bit helps!
