Whilst the book abidingly deals with the Muslim majority 'world, the essentialising error committed here - much like other anthologies on the broad topic (e.g. Murray & Roscoe 1997) - is to offer Islam a totalising place in the Muslim majority world, such that abiding cultural differences between here and there are ultimately explained (away) through (vague) reference to Islam and all aspects of life in Muslim majority countries, not merely the explicitly religious aspects, become sacrilised.
