In particular, it focuses upon the diverse residents of the southwestern state of Melaka and their negotiations of belonging and incorporation in Malaysian society. Following political independence and the formation of the Federation of Malaysia in 1957 Malaysian citizenship was extended to most members of these diverse social identities. In this post-colonial context, Timothy P. Daniels examines how public celebrations and representations, religious festivals, and patterns of social relations are connected to processes of inclusion and exclusion.

  2. Islamic spectrum in Java

    Daniels, Timothy P., 1960-
    Farnham, Surrey, England ; Burlington, VT : Ashgate, c2009.

    This empirically grounded work explores the emerging aspects of cultural politics in the world's most populous Muslim nation. It engages with complex issues of cultural translation, localization and globalization from various perspectives through analyzing a diverse range of cultural forms, including government or palace-based celebrations, ceremonies and rituals, modern student theatre, and Islamic revival sessions. With its discussion of both old and new Islamic movements, alongside the contested religious interpretations of public cultural events, this book will be of interest not only to anthropologists, but also to scholars of religion, culture and sociology.

  3. Living Sharia : law and practice in Malaysia

    Daniels, Timothy P., 1960-
    Seattle : University of Washington Press, [2017]

    "Examines the sociopolitical roles that sharia plays in Malaysia today. Drawing on fieldwork and textual research, it probes the contested implementation of Islamic family and criminal laws and sharia economics, and delineates cultural frameworks for understanding sharia among Muslims and non-Muslims. These include the views of Malay secular nationalists, political Islamic activists, Muslim feminists, Islamic NGOs, Sufi revivalists, liberal Muslim reformers, opposition party leaders, a non-Muslim social democratic political party, and liberal rights organizations. This thoughtful ethnography demonstrates that the way people think about sharia is often entangled with notions about race, gender equality, nation, liberal pluralism, citizenship, and universal human rights. Close investigation of the way diverse members of Malaysian society speak, write, and think about sharia reveals that ideas about sharia are not isolated from or always opposed to liberal pluralism and secularism. Intra-Muslim contests as well as Muslim and non-Muslim skirmishes chronicle revealing faultlines and suggest areas of potential compromise"--Drawing on ethnographic research, Living Sharia examines the role of sharia in the sociopolitical processes of contemporary Malaysia. The book traces the contested implementation of Islamic family and criminal laws and sharia economics to provide cultural frameworks for understanding sharia among Muslims and non-Muslims. Timothy Daniels explores how the way people think about sharia is often entangled with notions about race, gender equality, nationhood, liberal pluralism, citizenship, and universal human rights. He reveals that Malaysians' ideas about sharia are not isolated from-nor always opposed to-liberal pluralism and secularism. Living Sharia will be of interest to scholars as well as to policy makers, consultants, and professionals working with global NGOs.
