"Most contemporary anthropologists have used poststructural, postmodern, and symbolic/interpretive understandings of identity and religion to theorise these topics. This book, the product of the author’s multi-sited ethnographic research in Malaysia, is a thoughtful and timely contribution to this theoretical trajectory.
