About This Book

Indonesia has been home to some of the most vibrant and complex developments in modern Islamic thought anywhere in the world. Nevertheless little is known or understood about these developments outside Southeast Asia. By considering the work of the leading Indonesian thinkers of the 20th century, Michael Feener, an intellectual authority in the area, offers a cogent critique of this diverse and extensive literature and sheds light on the contemporary debates and the dynamics of Islamic reform. He highlights the openness to, and creative manipulation of, diverse strands of international thought that have come to define Islamic intellectualism in modern Indonesia. This book offers an accessible and interpretive overview of the religious and social thought of the world's largest Muslim majority nation.
