Revue de presse

'John Bowen's book is a model of scholarly honesty and acuity; it presents Islamic religious life as a range of activities and practices in which red threads of Islamic traditions interpenetrate local usages and exigencies. These usages and exigencies make Islam as diverse yet recognizable a tradition of faith and practice as any other of the major religious traditions, all reductive stereotypes to the contrary. A well-written and engaging effort to sketch out an intelligent 'anthropology of Islam' by presenting what particular Muslims 'do' and how those Muslims understand what they do.' William A. Graham, Murray A. Albertson Professor of Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University

'For those who would drive a wedge between textual Islam and local practice, or simply reduce the one to the other, this insightful study will come as a vital corrective. In such crucial domains as learning, law, and ritual, Bowen both synthesizes and reconfigures the study of Islamic cultures in ways that ordinary readers - as well as journalists, politicians, and scholars - will find immeasurably valuable.' Lawrence Rosen, Princeton University

Présentation de l'éditeur

In this powerful, but accessible new study, John Bowen draws on a full range of work in social anthropology to present Islam in ways that emphasise its constitutive practices, from praying and learning to judging and political organising. Starting at the heart of Islam - revelation and learning in Arabic lands - Bowen shows how Muslims have adapted Islamic texts and traditions to ideas and conditions in the societies in which they live. Returning to key case studies in Asia, Africa and Western Europe, to explore each major domain of Islamic religious and social life, Bowen also considers the theoretical advances in social anthropology that have come out of the study of Islam. A New Anthropology of Islam is essential reading for all those interested in the study of Islam and for those following new developments in the discipline of anthropology.

HASH(0x9e3be8e8) étoiles sur 5 Readable and illuminating overview 13 octobre 2012
Par J F G Shearmur - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a most interesting guide to recent work by anthropologists on Islam. It is readable, and I fould it most illuminating - e.g. in explaining some of the almost bewildering variety of forms that contemporary Islam takes. My only reservation - and this was hardly the author's fault - was that it was, inevitably, patchy in its coverage; but this was a product of the relatively limited amount of work in this field which has been undertaken. At a time at which relations between 'Western' countries and Muslim countries, and between Muslim immigrants and older-established populations, pose a range of important problems, the field that is surveyed in this volume surely merits a considerable infusion of resources (which might, indeed, be taken from those in 'security' studies who pontificate about these issues without showing much sign of knowledge of the kind that studies of this sort might give them)!

I had to get this book for my anthropology 411 class, which is the study of Islam. Overall, this book is an interesting and an informative read mainly because it explains how Muslims view their religion, but also how people who aren't Muslim view Islam, a religion that they aren't a part of but are missing from the outside. In some parts it even compares verses from the Qur'an with verses from the Bible as , making the connection that both religious books have verses that can be interpreted as encouragement for violence, but can also be interpreted as verses where god tells his ppl violence should only be put into effect when necessary. This book informs the reader about important people of Islam and traditions that they celebrate, what they do believe in and what they don't believe in, and covers a lot about the covering of women's bodies. There is a lot to learn from Bowen in this book.
