About Islamic Revivalism and Politics in Malaysia: Problems in Nation Building

This book describes the Islamisation process that has unfolded in Malaysia over the last fifty years, and provides feedback from in-depth interviews with 100 of Malaysia’s “educated classes”, or “elite”, regarding their reactions to the changes that have accompanied Islamisation, and how they feel it has impacted on them. It includes a brief overview of Islamisation globally, and a brief history of Malaysia, focusing especially on those aspects relevant to the book’s subject. It gives a comprehensive explanation of how and why Islamisation occurred in Malaysia, and illustrates the extent of change that has accompanied it. The feedback from the research participants includes special analysis of reactions from Muslim women, and non-Muslims. Explanation is provided as to why there is so little public debate about Islamisation, and the concerns that this group of people have about what is happening. Finally, the author gives his opinion about the impact the change in government in May 2019 is likely to have
