Islam and Islamic Institutions in British Malaya, 1874-1941:
Policies and Implementation
In this ground breaking study, the author examines the relationship between British colonial policies and the way in which Islam developed as a result. He asserts that despite the administration's stated aim of non interference, the effect was to reshape the practice of Islam in the country, transforming it from being a symbolic national religion into an institutionalised one. 302 pages with a bibliography, map and index.
