Halal" Arabic, literally "permissible" or "lawful." Johan Fischer's illuminating studyproves that in the modern world, halal is no longer an expression of esoteric forms of production, trade, and consumption, but part of a huge and expanding globalized market. Exploring contemporary forms of halal understanding and practice among Malay Muslims in London - that is, halal consumption by middle-class Malays on "the frontier" - evokes important and pressing questions onboth Islamic thought and how we live our lives today. "The Halal Frontier" gives us fresh insight into the religious dimensions of food consumption in an era of globalized mass production.
