James L. Peacock
Paperback, 288 pages


Originally published in 1978, this book's central question is: To what extent and in what sense does cultural change imply psychological rationalization? Religious reformism is the type of cultural change considered, and its psychological rationalization covers spheres ranging from autobiography to family life and work. 


Theoretical guidance in understanding this relationship derives from Max Weber, and data through which to explore the relation come from the major Islamic countries of Southeast Asia: Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
