Bryan S. Turner and Kamaludeen Mohamed Nasr, eds.

The Sociology of Islam: Collected Essays of Bryan S. Turner
(Ashgate, 2013)
Taking a thematic approach, Turner draws together his writings that explore the relationship between Islam and the ideas of Western social thinkers. He engages with the broad categories of capitalism, orientalism, modernity, gender, and citizenship, among others, as he examines how Muslims adapt to changing times and how Islam has come to be managed by those in power. Bryan S. Turner is presidential professor of sociology at the Graduate Center.
