About this title

Synopsis:

The continued vitality of Sufism as a living embodied postcolonial reality challenges the argument that Sufism has 'died' in recent times. Throughout India and Bangladesh, Sufi shrines exist in both the rural and urban areas, from the remotest wilderness to the modern Asian city, lying opposite banks and skyscrapers.
This book illuminates the remarkable resilience of South Asian Sufi saints and their cults in the face of radical economic and political dislocations and breaks new ground in current research. It addresses the most recent debates on the encounter between Islam and modernity and presents important new comparative ethnographic material.
Embodying Charisma re-examines some basic concepts in the sociology and anthropology of religion and the organization of religious movements.

Review:

"The book...makes a good case for including Sufism in the construction of theories about charismatic ritual and new religious movements within a regional form of Islam in the process of responding to modernity an d postcoloniality."
-Frank J. Korom, Boston University, "Religious Studies Review
