    Abstract

    Menerusi pengaplikasian teori "negara-dalam-masyarakat" yang diketengahkan oleh Joel Migdal (1988), tesis ini mengkaji pendominasian masyarakat Bumiputera Islam di Sarawak sejak lebih tiga dekad yang lalu. Dengan menggunakan beberapa metod kajian seperti analisis kandungan, temubual dan survei, tesis yang mengandungi Iapan bab ini distrukturkan mengikut tiga peringkat analisis yang berbeza iaitu nasional, wilayah dan komuniti. Peringkat analisis yang pertama mengupas senario politik di Sarawak dalam konteks politik nasional. Berdasarkan analisis ini, agenda negara untuk mendominasi masyarakat Sarawak terutamanya masyarakat Bumiputera Islam betjaya dicapai melalui strategi akomodasi yang digunakannya. Strategi ini menuntut negara menjadikan kekuatan sosial, golongan inteligensia Bumiputera Islam, di Sarawak sebagai alat untuk melebarkan kuasanya ke negeri ini. By applying the "state-in-society" theory that was developed by Joel Migdal (1988), this thesis analyzes the domination of the Muslim Bumiputera in Sarawak since more than three decades ago. Utilizing several research methods, namely content analysis, interviews and survey, this thesis with a total of eight chapters is structured according to three level of analysis; national, regional and community. The first level of analysis attempts to locate Sarawak politics within the larger context of Malaysia's political system. In this analysis, it is argued that the central state's agenda of dominating Sarawak's society in particular the Muslim Bumiputera has been made possible through its use of the accommodative strategy. At the crux of this strategy is the co-optation of Sarawak's social forces, the Muslim Bumiputera intelligentsia, who have become the central state's tool of domination in the negeri
