A Muslim revival has taken hold of Southeast Asia and shaken the political and social order of the region. Until now, no one has given a human faceto this movement, and now more than ever, Western misapprehension runs rampant.
Veteran National Geographic photographer Steve Raymer traveled throughout Southeast Asia, which has the world's largest muslim population, to highlight ordinary life in the cities and villages.
Over 170 stunning color photgraphs show how Muslims in the area are living, raising their families, practicing their faith, and looking ahead, as are we all to an uneasy future.
