About This Book

Substantial background study, and field interviews in a Kuala Lumpur suburb underpin this study of linkages between Islamic opinion and practice and consumption/shopping by middle class Malays. Policies and practice which affect consumption/shopping choice and the roles of shopping malls are highlighted. Among matters discusses are: control of shopping malls and Islamic approaches to malls, halalisation in everyday life, organic foods, class priorities and islamic perceptions of extravagance and status, organisation of halal/haram procedures, and middle class aspirations. Bibliography, black-and-white photographs and index.
