Gerhard Hoffstaedter conducted anthropological fieldwork in Shah Alam and Kota Bharu, Malaysia, two geographically and economically disparate but primarily Muslim-majority cities. The people of Shah Alam and Kota Bharu are characters in a high-level and high-stakes political drama that Hoffstaedter portrays as centered elsewhere, in the federal (and sometimes state) governments and involving their elite agents. The citizenry of Malaysia are victims of what he identifies as ‘politicide’-the silencing, policing and limiting of their sovereignty.

At the heart of this study is the conjuncture between Malay ethnicity and Islamic faith, a state discourse on "civilized Islam," but other areas are also examined, resulting in a study that combines philosophical and social theory with anthropological insights.

Gerhard Hoffstaedter. This book explores the relationship between the Malaysian state and its citizens in creating and maintaining fixed identities. It focuses on new modalities of being Muslim in a modern world. It develops the concept of 'Islamicity' to make sense of contemporary modern Islamic religiosity that is applicable to a range of modernizing Muslim countries. This book explores a central tension in identity politics - how the state, civil society and people in general may want to create and maintain cultural, religious and social cohesion but paradoxically their practices.

This book explores a central tension in identity politics: how the state, civil society, and people want to create and maintain cultural, religious, and social cohesion while paradoxically their everyday practices often run counter to this. Malaysia is no exception, with a political elite maintaining control and cultural dominance but juggling many political pressures. At the heart of this study is the conjuncture between Malay ethnicity and Islamic faith, a state discourse on “civilized Islam,” but other areas are also examined, resulting in a study that combines philosophical and social theory with anthropological insights.
