It explores the different approaches to Islam and local traditions as they were expressed in Dutch and British writings and research institutions. The Dutch were concerned with the political manifestations of Islam in Indonesia whereas the British addressed the cultural expressions of their Malay subjects. There was no unified, monolithic Orientalism, and it is important to consider their diverse backgrounds, approaches and positions regarding Islam and Muslims.
