Cham Muslims of the Mekong Delta by Phillip Taylor

This highly readable ethnographic study traces the settlement history and origin narratives of the Cham Muslims of the Mekong delta, describing their religious practices, material life, and relationship with the state (Vietnam and Cambodia), and showing the texture of their everyday life.

Its original insights into the sources of religious and ethnic differentiation in the Mekong delta will enrich the comparative study of culturally pluralist societies, while its contributions to the study of Islam, cosmopolitanism, trade, rural development and resistance, as well as understandings of Vietnam, Cambodia, and the Malay diaspora, are new and important.
