About This Book

This is a readable and comprehensive basic account of the development and nature of Islam in Indonesia. After a chapter on the background to the 13th century arrival of Islam, the next three chapters highlight aspects of the country's often-turbulent politico-Islamic history to the 1990s. The last four chapters explore the place in recent events and changes of very varied major Muslim institutions and movements including those related to terrorism and Islamic Extremism. The relevance of the country's national mythologies and the swing towards democracy are also addressed. With illustrations, directory of political parties, glossary, reading list and index.
