Routledge Studies on Islam and Muslims in Southeast Asia

About the Series

This series aims to publish original and cutting-edge contributions from scholars in religious studies, sociology, political science, history, anthropology, economics, psychology, geography and other related disciplines to provide new perspectives on the historical, comparative, and theoretical study of Islam and Muslims in Southeast Asia from the early modern period to the present. Works that are published in the series would fill the gaps in the existing literature, other than offering new conceptual and methodological approaches to studying Islam and Muslims in Southeast Asia. The series gives much emphasis on works that are both reflexive and empirical, written by both junior and senior scholars in the field.
