Formatted abstract
The publication of a work on freedom of religion is always a welcomed event, but even more so when it deals with Islam and Islamic law of apostasy and its punishment.

This work will provide a reference of sorts on the debate over religious freedom in Islam and, more particularly, on the contemporary Malaysian laws of apostasy and the social, political and legal implications of The Perlis Bill of 2000, the government’s response to increasing pressures from Muslim groups to introduce stricter religious and apostasy laws. Similar studies should be undertaken for other Muslim countries to see if the Malaysian case represents only the beginning of a new trend.
