https://doi.org/10.12730/13091719.2013.42.94 The End of Innocence? Indonesian Islam and the Temptations of Radicalism [= La fin de l’innocence? L’islam indonésien face à la tentation radicale de 1967 à nos jours], by
Andrée Feillard and Rémy Madinier (translated into English by Wong Wee; Singapore: NUS [National University of Singapore] Press in association with IRASEC, 2011), 336 pp., ISBN: 978-9971-69-512-5, US$30.00 & S$38.00 (pb) (First paragraph) The basic premise of the book is that radicalism in Indonesia is not a new phenomenon. Although Islam has spread widely and peacefully in the country since the 13th century, Islamism and radicalism are significant challenges to Indonesian Islam. Islamism and radicalism have been a part of Indonesian history since its emergence as a nation-state. These phenomena have emerged in conjunction with Indonesia´s development up to the end of the 20th century. Islamism and radicalism in Indonesia have intensified with the rise of globalization over the last ten years and put pressure on Indonesian Islam.
