by Nurbay, Azhar, M.P.A., The American University of Paris (France), 2009, 72; 10305879
Abstract (Summary)

Islamic banking is a fascinating phenomenon to study; it has the capability to develop in multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies. As well it is global and can be found in both a Muslim majority and Muslims minority societies. However, for some countries Islamic banking is a way of life, while as for others it is a business opportunity.

The thesis discusses Malaysia and Kazakhstan, two developing countries, which initially have developed conventional banking systems and later introduced Islamic banking. The comparative study of these cases provides some answers to the question on the motivations of Islamic banking development in heterogeneous societies.
