Fischer’s venture into the terrain of economics in the everyday life of Muslims makes some important contributions. He shows us that the Malaysian state, as part of its effort to ‘out Islam’ the dakwah organizations, has actively sought to dominate discourses about proper Islamic consumption and in the process they have produced an alternative form of Islamic neoliberal capitalism. Meanwhile, Muslims negotiate a variety of other discourses combining Islam and consumption in their daily lives. … [T]his book provides significant insights into some political and religious dynamics in contemporary Malaysian society.
