This is not only a comprehensive, well-balanced and very informative account of past and present developments in Islam in Indonesia but also by far the most readable. Jamie Mackie Emeritus Professor and Visiting Fellow in the Indonesia Project, Australian National University

An important book that bridges the gap between the more specialist literature and the - often depressingly ill-informed - comments of journalists and ideologues. Merle Ricklefs Professor, Department of History, National University of Singapore

Popular perceptions of Islam in the world's largest Muslim-majority country reflect contending stereotypes. Some see it as mystical and benign, others fear that Islamic extremists are already on the way to dominating Indonesia's struggling democracy. For those who don't know what to think, this readable book offers keys to understanding what is really going on, drawn from analysis of Indonesia's long history, unparalleled diversity and contemporary development.
