Falls a little short theoretically, but well worth the read. This eloquent ethnographic portrayal of an Islamic community articulates how an alternative modernity, and specifically an enchanted enchanred, may be constructed by Shi’I Muslims who consider themselves simultaneously deeply modern, cosmopolitan, and pious. Based on two years of ethnographic research in the southern suburbs of Beirut, An Enchanted Modern demonstrates that Islam and modernity are not merely compatible, but actually go hand-in-hand.

By emphasizing the ways notions of modernity and piety are lived, debated, and shaped by “everyday Islamists,” this book underscores the inseparability of piety and politics in the lives of pious Muslims.
