Although partly based on Geertz s fieldwork, this book is concerned less with ethnograhic anthropology and with comparative religion Despite this difference, Geertz applies his trademark semantic approach The tasks he sets ahead of him is not to formulate an underlying uniformity behind superficially diverse phenomena, but to analyze the nature of that diversity as we find it In comparing the Islam of Indonesia, heavily influenced by the Indic Hindu Buddhist tradition, characterized by mental [...]

Anyone who wants to understand the current state of the Muslim world should read this book Geertz takes a diachronic approach to understanding Muslim culture at the antipodes of the Muslim world, Morocco and Indonesia He shows the development Islam in those two places and its fusion with indiginous culture He then goes on to show what the effect of colonialism was in those two societies, and it is not what you think The reaction to modernity was, in his terms, the ideologization of religion That [...]

The only reason I didn t give this book a 5 and this is a completely personal reason is for the fact that the comparative analysis of religion is not my favorite theme Leaving that aside, Geertz s analysis, as always, is an excellent one, full with well built arguments In four brief chapters, by tracing the history of two different countries who share the same religion you guessed, Morocco and Indonesia , the anthropologist shows how religion can be deeply influenced by the local culture and com [...]

Had this left over from college Aimed at specialists, but between the discussions of methodology, which were relatively uninteresting to me, there were several nuggets of insight about the current state of the Muslim world, and some general information about Muslim practice and the national character of Morocco and Indonesia, so for that it was worth it Geertz is a eloquent writer, as well In all, too academic for my tastes perhaps something general would do, like his Religion of Java.


Matt Friedman

His insight into the diversity of a particular religious bloc across various cultures is enormously important, especially now Plus, it s Geertz, whose writing is as wonderfully put together as it is informative.

First of the books on Islam that I have read and I am glad since it showed how very differently the faith was practiced in different parts of the world.


Matthew Harris

Geertz is a structural functionalist who believes that humans use religion to make sense out of chaos Easy to read text with, short and sweet with a lot of anthropological theory.
