Abdullah Ahmad Badawi: Revivalist of an Intellectual Tradition
Coronet Books Incorporated, Jan 1, 2005 - Philosophy - 160 pages
"Abdullah Ahmad Badawi: Revivalist of an Intellectual Tradition not only attempts to trace the ancestral roots of Malaysia's fifth Prime Minister, it aims to elucidate the more esoteric ideas couched in the latter's now famous poetic composition, "In Search of Everlasting Peace". In addition, this study represents a critical albeit preliminary examination of the phrase 'Islam hadhari' cast in the framework of the worldview of Islam. It is a philosophical, intellectual understanding of the approach contrary to what the current information suggests." "To date there has been no complete adequate understanding of the phrase. Apart from being the only adequate scholarly work dealing with this approach, it will also be one of the first renderings of the approach into English which simultaneously attempts to weave Abdullah's beautifully penned poetic composition with the need for a sagacious comprehension of the modern contemporary world."--BOOK JACKET.
