Review - Hashtag Islam

Paul K Mcclure, Hashtag Islam: How Cyber-Islamic Environments Are Transforming Religious Authority, by GARY R. BUNT, Sociology of Religion, Volume 80, Issue 4, Winter 2019, Pages 542–543

"Recognizing that “cyber-Islamic environments” are fast-moving targets, Bunt carefully frames his research with enduring theoretical pieces that are relevant and accessible for a broadly academic audience. McLuhan, Habermas, Barthes, and Baudrillard surface frequently in Bunt’s work and help ground the empirical findings that are the real treasure of this book."
