Dr Philip Sutton

Philip Sutton's recent research (with Dr Stephen Vertigans) has made a significant contribution to reinvigorating the historical sociology of Islam for the contemporary world. Following a series of journal articles in this area since 2000, a book entitled, Resurgent Islam: A Sociological Approach, was published by Polity Press in August 2005 and a second is currently under consideration. A further article on Islamic social movements will be published in Mobilization in early 2006, exploring militant forms of Islam. He has also published in the field of environmental sociology (see for example; Nature, Environment and Society, 2004, Palgrave Macmillan) and is interested in how the re-emergence of ‘the natural’ in modern socities is re-shaping the classical sociological legacy in developing fields such as the sociology of emotions.
