Islam and Popular Culture in Indonesia and Malaysia
Andrew N Weintraub (ed)
In this book a group of scholars and two media professionals, Rhoma Irama and Ishadi SK, look at the interaction between Islam and popular culture in the two countries which are home to approximately a fifth of the world's Muslims. The contributions not only show, through case studies, how Islam has used popular culture to target urbanised youth, but also how the interaction between the two is as full of fun and pleasure as secular popular culture which coexists with this phenomenon. Islam in such a milieu is far removed from the perception of the religion being monolithic, militaristic or Middle Eastern. New Hardback. First Edition. 259 pages with an index.
