dc.description.abstractThis work is a modest attempt at examining and understanding the nature and impact of development process in Malaysia during the Mahathir administration. The main time frame chosen is from the year 1981 to 1992, although the events after this period up to the completion of this thesis are also relevant in various ways. The analysis is made primarily in the light of the Government's Islamization policy and Vision 2020. The study is undertaken in view of a popular belief that development during this time demonstrates a significant shift from its long standing traditional approach. How far does this claim bear the truth? The result of this study reveals an answer to this primary question.en
dc.description.abstractThe research, which adopts what the researcher calls a comparative sociological study or approach that combines the elements of sociological and Islamic studies together, primarily analyses the Government development policies and strategy which are believed to have been responsible in bringing about the observed changes and impacts on the society, especially on the Muslims. For practical reasons, comparison takes place in various forms and on different levels. For example, in the theoretical chapter the philosophy of development and change as seen from both perspectives is established as a framework upon which our analysis of Malaysian development is based. Contrasts between certain development policies and the achievements of two different eras are also made through longitudinal comparison. Standard comparison is used more often due to the nature of the subjects under scrutiny. Despite its unavoidable reference to Malaysia as a whole, the research, however, places more emphasis on the development and changes in the Peninsular. Logistic and financial constraints explain the need for this geographic limitation.en
dc.description.abstractDivided into five main chapters, namely Introduction, Development and Change: A Comparative Theoretical Framework, Development Under Mahathir: Genesis, Ideological Foundation and l Profile, The Impact of Development Policy I: Various Impacts on the Society, and The Impact of Development Policy II: Various Muslim Responses respectively, the study is multi-disciplinary in nature, with sociological and Islamic elements as its main features. The study involves both library research and fieldwork .en
dc.description.abstractThis research draws its resources from various types of materials like relevant Governmental and non-Governmental documents, interviews, Mahathir's articles, books and speeches, personal observations, journals, articles, working papers, newspapers, magazines and others. Recourse to data, statistical or descriptive, is reached by'consulting important documents like the Social Statistics Bulletin, Annual Reports of relevant institutions, State and District Data Banks, Malaysia Plans, Economic Reports and Educational Statistics.en
dc.description.abstractThe writer is hopeful that this work will be a useful addition to existing academic works in the field, and will benefit those who are interested especially in such areas of study as Sociology of Development, Islamic Sociology, and Malaysian Studies.en
