Summary "Much of the media attention given after 9/11 and the Bali bombings of October 2002 to manifestations of radical Islam in Indonesia, home to the largest Muslim community in the world, have been limited to current affairs. This book provides a broader perspective about contemporary Islam in Indonesia through discussion of two outstanding streams of thought and movements which clearly illustrate the significant contemporary influence of the Middle East on the Indonesian archipelago in an Islamic context - Islamic modernism and radical Islamic fundamentalism."--BOOK JACKET
