The substantive regulations and legal institutions through which the state manages the religions of its Malay minority in contemporary Singapore are the focus of this volume. Through a detailed account of positive law and related religious and social institutions, Lindsey and Steiner explore the balance that the Singaporean government seeks to maintain between its obligations to an indigenous Muslim minority and the needs of its majority non-Muslim immigrant community.
