"Islam in Malaysian Foreign Policy" is concerned with Malaysian foreign policy and how the policy is shaped by an domestic Islamic agenda. The author draws specific connections between the direction and intent of the country's foreign policy towards other Muslim Countries and the politics of Islam within the domestic scene. She examines the relationship between Islam, development and economic growth, the problem' of extremism and relations with other countries such as Libya and Iran, the significance of the modern-day pilgrimage to Mecca, the issue of Muslim minorities, and the Malaysian attitude towards such global problems as the issues of Palestine, Afghanistan, the Gulf War and Bosnia. The book also addresses the real and imagined significance of Islam as a force in contemporary global politics.
