Everyday Piety: Islam and Economy in Jordan

"In Everyday Piety, Sarah A. Tobin draws our attention to the complex and dynamic ways in which everyday practices of piety intersect with various dimensions of what might conventionally be called economic practices. The analysis is situated in Amman, Jordan, a growing metropolitan area in which portions of the landscape are being restructured by neoliberal practices, aesthetics, public spaces, and modes of social interaction. Tobin's original approach opens up new space for thinking about the role of religion in a rapidly changing region. A must-read and one of the most exciting and innovative works in years."—Jillian Schwedler, author of Faith in Moderation
