Islamic Law in Southeast Asia:
A Study of Its Application in Kelantan and Aceh
Islamic law although certainly functioning in some form before the advent of colonial rule in Indonesia and Malaysia, has often been pushed aside by European inspired colonial laws. At the end of the twentieth century there have however been movements to introduce shariah in areas with strong Muslim fundmentalist governments. This work studies the efforts and varying success of the regional governments in Aceh and Kelantan. The experiences in these two states could be a springboard for extension of the shariah elsewhere. 77 pages Please see the scan of the contents page for further details.
