    Jack Goody and the Location of Islam.Aziz Al-Azmeh - 2009 - Theory, Culture and Society 26 (7-8):71-84.
    This article considers Jack Goody’s studies of Islam in their various contexts. It starts with a consideration of Goody’s comparative historico-anthropological studies of specific topics such as flowers, cuisine, and kinship and the family, and of his studies of wider range and broader import. It analyses the elements and main thrust of his historical approach, paying attention to the conception of comparativism he uses, placing these in the context of current debates on method. It then moves on to Islamic material (...)

    Monotheistic Monarchy.Aziz al-Azmeh - 2005 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 4 (10):133-149.
    In the first part of this text, the author attempts to demonstrate that sacral kingship might, in anthropological terms, be regarded an Elementary Form of socio-political life; not an autonomous elementary form, but one falling under the category of rulership.

    Postmodern Obscurantism and 'the Muslim Question'.Aziz al-Azmeh - 2003 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 2 (5):21-47.
    The all-too-human proclivity to short-sightedness colludes with political perspectives of the moment, to project a fragmentary image of the present instant into the essence of eternity, and to postu- late Islam as the trans-historical protoplasm in the life of all Muslims. I shall propose to you that this construal of Islam as a culture which in itself explains the affairs of Muslim collectivities and overdetermines their economies, societies, and non-religious cultures, is the fundamental element in the culture of misrecognition that (...)
