Editorial Reviews


"[T]his volume is an exemplary and admirable outcome of a ‘master class’ project led by a world class sociologist, Bryan Turner, whose presence in Singapore has certainly benefited the two young local sociologists who co-authored the book... the book successfully weaves theories, concepts and available empirical evidence into a book that is a must-read, firstly, for those interested in the way Muslim societies interact with non-Muslims and the State in an integrated manner, with all its contradictions, and, secondly, at a more generic level, as a useful example/guide to research into the relationship between religion and the modern state." - A.B. Shamsul, National University of Malaysia (UKM); Journal of Islamic Studies (2011)

Format: Hardcover
This book could be read by European politicians, who increasingly have to deal with a Muslim population. Singapore has 15% Muslims and an elaborate system to ensure religious tolerance. This book does not give an overall perspective, but instead focuses on a few practices like eating halal and wearing a head scarf. Singapore is an advanced economy, but the Muslims are still quite traditional. The same can be expected to be the case in Europe. Interesting to read some of the interviews. How Muslims do not like to sit too close to Chinese because they would smell the forbidden food.
