About This Book

This book offers an analysis of Islamist political behaviour during the early democratic years in Indonesia, concentrating on the period between 1998 and 2003. The introduction discusses vital terminology and historical subjects that the later chapters address. Chapter I discusses the re-formation of Islamist politics in 1998 and 1999; Chapter II depicts the frustration among Islamists from defeats and concessions to non-Muslims since Indonesian independence in 1945; Chapter III covers the motives and doctrinal approaches of Islamist parties to Islamise state and society; Chapter IV examines the political strategies of Islamist parties during post-New Order elections. Chapter V surveys the behaviour of Islamist parties between ideological goals and political advantage during various post-New Order administrations.
