“A very accessible, updated translation. . . . This book goes to the heart of the question of whether and how democratization and Islamism can be sustained in Indonesia or other Muslim-majority countries.” —Choice (49:8, April 2012)

“This is one of the most important books available on the origins and development of radical Islamism—including its terrorist offshoots—in Indonesia. The authors are among the best-informed, most soundly analytical and balanced ever to write on this subject. Their book is authoritative, wide-ranging, and persuasive. Its appearance in an English translation is a boon for anyone seeking to understand the social, political, and religious dynamics of Indonesia, the largest majority-Muslim nation in the world.” —M. C. Ricklefs, professor of history, National University of Singapore

“This work presents a rich and nuanced examination of the rise of Islamic radicalism over the course of the New Order period and beyond. The authors provide insightful and historically contextualized analyses of complex permutations across a whole range of Islamic institutions and organizations in relation to the political and broader social dynamics of the world’s most populous Muslim nation. It is a must-read for anyone interested in contemporary Indonesia.” —R. Michael Feener, associate professor, National University of Singapore

“There have been several books on Islam and politics in Indonesia in the post-Suharto period, but Feillard and Madinier’s work is by far the best. Engagingly written and comprehensive in its coverage, this brilliant book will be of interest to both specialists and the general reader interested in understanding the conundrum of politics in the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country.” —Robert Hefner, Director, Institute on Culture, Religion, and World Affairs, Boston University
