'This volume contributes a fine-grained ethnographic analysis of the corporation as a key site of Islamic moral production in late capitalism. Tracing the 'trajectory and emplacement' of sharia in the modern Malaysian corporate workplace, Sloane-White provides an engrossing account of the spaces of work wherein both subjectivities and livelihoods are made and remade.' Laura Elder, Anthropology of Work Review
'This is a gem of a book, meticulously researched and incisively analyzed by the author, of a social site not usually accessible to scholars and ethnographers of Islam. The sometimes mundane but most times powerful life-changing workplace is easily missed as a site which informs the turns and tides of potent religious movements. The over-reliance on politics in explaining religious dynamics has led to another crucial location of 'religion making' being overlooked, a 'third space' that is neither 'fully 'public' nor in any way 'private'', according to the author ... It is in addressing this gap that Corporate Islam makes its mark. ... All eight chapters are riveting, each bringing out the various dimensions of a flourishing Islamic corporate sphere.' Maznah Mohamad, Pacific Affairs
