This book presents interdisciplinary studies of inter-religious marriage between Muslims and non-Muslims (as well as between members of different Muslim communities) in locations in three societies: Bombay, India; Dakar, Thies, and Ziguinchor in Senegal; and Istanbul, Turkey. The country studies are united by a distinct theoretical approach, detailed in the introduction. This approach proposes that the phenomenon of inter-religious marriage is a unique prism through which we can understand the complex processes and dynamics by which religious, cultural, and social identities are negotiated at the level of individuals, families, and communities.
