About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers a new direction for the study of contemporary Islam by focusing on what being Muslim means in people's everyday lives. It complements existing study by focusing not on mosque-going, activist and devout Muslims, but on those who are nominal believers, or who put their religion to work in 'unorthodox' ways.
