Sociology of Islam (SOI) provides an international scholarly forum for research related to the religion and culture of Islam, Muslim societies, and social issues related to Muslims in socio-political context. Decidedly rooted in the sociological perspective, SOI takes an expansive and global view of this broad subject matter. The SOI publishes multiple issues per year containing original peer-reviewed articles and book reviews on the sociological, political, anthropological, historical and other aspects of Islam and Muslim societies across all times and places. By promoting an academic understanding of the richly variegated and complex nature of both majority Muslim societies and of the issues related to the minority status of Muslims in other social contexts, in both thought and practice, Sociology of Islam makes a distinctive contribution to current scholarship in the field of sociology.
