Stephen William Foster
Publisher:
Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group
Foster's timely work looks at globalization processes and the transformations that occur within a diverse society. He investigates the multicultural blend of Western and Muslim cultures in Morocco, showing how a multicultural society deals with differences, e.g., how urban secularized Muslims constitute their identities, and how they present themselves to non-Muslim Westerners. Foster's work is about close encounters-he captures the dialogue between individuals and their resistance to intolerance. He offers a combination of narrative and life history, timely investigation of the intercultural problems facing Westerners & Muslims, and a consideration of the broader psychological and political forces at work in a multicultural society. His ethnography is a rich resource for anthropologists and African studies researchers.
