Michael Cook takes an in-depth, comparative look at political identity, social values, attitudes to warfare, views about the role of religion in various cultural domains, and conceptions of the polity. In all these fields he finds that the Islamic heritage offers richer resources for those engaged in current politics than either the Hindu or the Christian heritages. He uses this finding to explain the fact that, despite the existence of Hindu and Christian counterparts to some aspects of Islamism, the phenomenon as a whole is unique in the world today. The book also shows that fundamentalism - in the sense of a determination to return to the original sources of the religion - is politically more adaptive for Muslims than it is for Hindus or Christians. A sweeping comparative analysis by one of the worlds leading scholars of premodern Islam, Ancient Religions, Modern Politics sheds important light on the relationship between the foundational texts of these three great religious traditions and the politics of their followers today.

This book seeks to explore the changes in Tamil Hindu death practices in Singapore, brought about by external factors. In tracing the changes, we examine the politics of space in landscapes of death, where different meanings were invested in the site, bring about a conflict of interests. In pursuing development and modernization, policies were introduced by the state and community representatives were also employed to rationalize state policies in prioritizing land space for the living over the dead, and consequently led to the stealthy switch from burial practices to cremation in disposing the dead. These changes in funeral practices have altered and shaped the conception of it in contemporary society, making space for customization of rituals, yet reinforces the identity and norms of the Tamil Hindu community.
