This book examines the cultural responses of Muslims to the transformations, contradictions and challenges confronting contemporary Islam as it moves towards the twenty-first century. The diffusion of populations, the globalization of culture and the forces of postmodernity have shaken the world like never before. These developments have generated a debate among Muslims which, as the contributors to this volume show, will have far-reaching consequences not just for the Muslim world, but for relations between Islam and the West more generally.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Excellent and extremely important."
-Bryan S. Turner, Dean of Arts, Deakin University, Geelong
"In this book, anthropology is coming of age. The globalization of Islam is one of the most important features of the modern age and effects [sic] us all. Ahmed and Donnan have skillfully compiled a volume that gives essential insights into a complex marriage between Islam, the state and society in an age of instant communications. Issues of race, prejudice, gender, space, fundamentalism and migration are all skillfully presented to give a new and enlightened perspective on Islam in the post-modern age."
-Andre Singer, Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, the University of Southern California, Los Angeles
