He investigates the multicultural blend of Western and Moslem cultures in Morocco, showing how a multicultural society deals with differences, e.g., how urban secularized Moslems constitute their identities, and how they present themselves to non-Moslem Westerners. Fosters work is about close encounters-he captures the dialogues between individuals and their resistance to intolerance. He offers a combination of narrative & life history, timely investigation of the intercultural problems facing Westerners & Moslims, and a consideration of the broader psychological and political forces at work in a multicultural society. His ethnography is a rich resource for anthropologists and African studies researchers.
