Critical Muslim 07: Muslim Archipelago, Paperback / softback Book

Critical Muslim 07: Muslim Archipelago Paperback / softback

Edited by Ziauddin Sardar, Robin Yassin-Kassab

Part of the Critical Muslim series


Malaysia and Indonesia are seen as bastions of liberal Islam.

Is this really true or simply a widely held misconception about south-east Asian Muslims?

What is the contribution of the Muslim archipelago to the world of Islam?

What can we learn from Malaysian and Indonesian experiments in democracy?

This issue of Critical Muslim addresses these questions by examining the politics, history, culture and religious traditions of Malaysia and Indonesia.

Contributors include Merryl Wyn Davies on Malaysian multiculturalism, Luthfi Assyaukanie on Indonesia politics, Carool Kersten on the struggles of Indonesian intellectuals, Andre Vltchek on religion and tolerance in south-east Asia, Andi Achdian on Islam in Java, Ahmad Fuad Rahmat on the Malaysian intellectual guru Naguib Al-Attas, Shanon Shah on Malay Magic, Jo Kukathas on 'Malay-ness', Linda Christanty on literary stars of Indonesia, Rossie Indira on Indonesian pop music, and Nazry Bahrawi on reformist debates in south-east Asia.
