Muslims and Matriarchs: Cultural Resilience in Minangkabau Through Jihad and Colonialism 

--- 

Jeffrey Hadler

The Minangkabau of West Sumatra have a distinct set of traditions of which they are proud and results in a tight knit community. Their culture is matrilineal which often brings them into conflict with Wahabi reformists keen to promote a contradictory way of living which they claim was established by the Prophet Muhammad. In this book the author traces this conflict from pre-colonial times through to the 20th century. New Paperback 211 pages with some black and white photographs, a bibliography and an index.
