Muslim-Non-Muslim Marriage: Political And Cultural Contestations In Southeast Asia
Gavin W. Jones, Chee Heng Leng & M. Mohamad (eds.)
While marriage the world over can be one of the greatest sources of family joy, it can also be a source of bitter family strife. One of the main sparks for the latter is marriage outside the family group, whether it be to someone of a different class, caste, culture or religion. Multicultural Southeast Asia, and particularly the attitudes of and about Muslim beliefs and practices concerning in the region, is the focus of the various contributors to this book. Academics and lawyers, specialising in various aspects of family work, look at the different traditions and current experiences in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. 322 pages with an index.
