Series: NIAS-Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, Monographs (Book 113). Johan Fischer is a Danish anthropologist who has studied the convergence of Islam, nationalism and the middle class in Malaysia. The Malaysian state has set itself up as an international guarantor of halal products; but Johan here examines the role of food habits in the formation of a new Malaysian national bourgeoisie. An amazing case study which Johan has followed up in London (where the big supermarket chains have discovered a liking for halal foods, including toothpaste!) and again in SE Asia.

By exploring consumption practices in urban Malaysia, this book shows how diverse forms of Malay middle-class consumption (of food, clothing, and cars, for example) are understood, practiced, and contested as a particular mode of modern Islamic practice. It illustrates ways in which the issue of "proper Islamic consumption" for consumers, the marketplace, and the state in contemporary Malaysia evokes a whole range of contradictory Islamic visions, lifestyles, and debates articulating what Islam is or ought to be.

Taking the study of Islam in everyday life into the field of economic production, distribution and consumption is underexplored terrain. Johan Fischer, with his book Proper Islamic consumption: shopping among the Malays in modern Malaysia, ventures into this terrain. Focusing on consumption, he argues that the Malaysian state’s nationalist vision constitutes the dominant form of combining consumption and Islamic practice.

The West has seen the rise of the organic movement. In the Muslim world, a similar halal movement is rapidly spreading. Exploring consumption practices in urban Malaysia, this book shows how diverse forms of Malay middle-class consumption (of food, clothing and cars, for example) are understood, practised and contested as a particular mode of modern Islamic practice. It illustrates ways in which the issue of 'proper Islamic consumption' for consumers, the marketplace and the state in contemporary Malaysia evokes a whole range of contradictory Islamic visions, lifestyles and debates articulating what Islam is or ought to be. Its rich empirical material on everyday consumption in a local context will reinvigorate theoretical discussions about the nature of religion, ritual, the sacred and capitalism in the new millennium.
