Compelling and original, this book offers a unique insight into the modern Islamic corporation, revealing how power, relationships, individual identities, gender roles, and practices - and often massive financial resources - are mobilized on behalf of Islam. Focusing on Muslims in Malaysia, Patricia Sloane-White argues that sharia principles in the region's Islamic economy produce a version of Islam that is increasingly conservative, financially and fiscally powerful, and committed to social control over Muslim and non-Muslim public and private lives. Packed with fascinating details, the book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Islamic politics and culture in modern life.

'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.' Maznah Mohamad, Pacific Affairs
