Piety and Politics: Islamism in Contemporary Malaysia
Joseph Chinyong Liow
Malaysia has often been held out as an example of a progressive Muslim in a world where more dogmatic forms of Islam hold sway. In this book, Liow effectively dismantles this view as wishful thinking as he shows how democracy has been eroded in recent years as parties dependent on the majority Malay community vie with each other in being more Islamic than the other in an effort to bolster their vote at the ballot box.
