9781474409209: Islam and Colonialism: Becoming Modern in Indonesia and Malaya

"It is commonly held that European colonization and the efforts to modernize Muslim lands challenged Islam and undermined local custom, and that Islamization was generally opposed to European ideas and technologies and rejected local beliefs and practices. While colonial historiographies tend to focus on the influence of European actors, Muslim nationalist and postcolonial scholars emphasize Muslim and native agencies. In the Netherlands East Indies and British Malaya, however, the ideas and actions associated with the concept of modernity were formed as an outcome of the interplay between Islamic reform and European colonialism. In this book, the author offers a comparative and cross-cultural history of Islamic reform and European colonialism as both dependent and independent factors in shaping the multiple ways of becoming modern in Indonesia and Malaya during the first half of the twentieth century. In formulating and advancing their respective projects of organizational, political, legal, and educational reform, Muslim reformers and European colonial scholars and administrators often differed, but they were not always antagonistic. They sometimes worked in tandem in order to achieve common ends. The colonialists did not necessarily oppose Islam and local customs, and Islamic reformers did not always resist Western colonial rule and the processes of modernization and localization."

About the Author:


Muhamad Ali is Assistant Professor in the Religious Studies Department at the University of California, Riverside.

Review:


"Through its critical approach to the interplay of Islamic religious reform and dynamics of both British and Dutch colonialism, this work of comparative history opens up illuminating perspective on the rather different shapes that Islam and Muslim societies have taken in the neighbouring nation-states of modern Malaysia and Indonesia." -- Michael Feener, Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Focusing on Indonesia and Malaysia, this book looks at how European colonial and Islamic modernising powers operated in the common and parallel domains of government and politics, law and education in the first half of the 20th century. It shows that colonialisation was able to co-exist with lslamisation, arguing that Islamic movements were not necessarily antithetical to modernisation, nor that Western modernity was always anathema to Islamic and local custom. Rather, in distinguishing religious from worldly affairs, they were able to adopt and adapt modem ideas and practices that were useful or relevant while maintaining the Islamic faith and ritual that they believed to be essential. In developing an understanding of the common ways in which Islam was defined and treated in Indonesia and Malaysia, we can gain a new insight to Muslim politics and culture in Southeast Asia.
