Islam and Colonialism

Becoming Modern in Indonesia and Malaya

Muhamad Ali

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Shows how Asian Muslims and European Christians developed modern approaches to politics, law and education which formed the basis for governance and civil society in the independent nations of Indonesia and Malaysia
  • Adds to a more nuanced understanding of the relationship between Islam and the West
  • Demonstrates that colonial-Islamic relations were less confrontational, both conceptually and institutionally, than has been previously believed
  • Uses comparative history to emphasise common and parallel features between diverse forces for change
