Muslims in Singapore: Piety, Politics and Policies
Kamaludeen Mohamed Nasir, Alexius A Pereira & Bryan S Turner
In this book the authors examine how Muslims live and are 'managed' in a secular Singapore dominated by Buddhist and Christian ethnic Chinese. For the Government has an unusual approach to multiculturalism in that it intervenes in citizens' daily lives to 'promote' racial harmony, whether, in the case of Muslims, through paternalist affirmative action in Education and skills training or in madrasah education. The successes and failures of such policies and Muslims' reactions to them are also included. New Hardback. First edition. 128 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
