The Roots of Terrorism in Indonesia

From Darul Islam to Jema'ah Islamiyah


This groundbreaking book shows with rare clarity that Indonesias current terrorist problems have a long and complex history. Based on a remarkable array of sources, many of which have never been publicly cited, Solahudins rigorous account fills in many gaps in our knowledge of jihadist groups, how they interacted with the state and events abroad, and why they at times resorted to extreme violence, such as the 2002 Bali bombings. Dave McRaes translation offers a complete account of the development of jihadism from the earliest years of Indonesian independence to the terrorist bombings of the past decade, for an English audience. The book has become something of a phenomenon in Indonesia. Its the subject of television talk shows and public discussions in mosques and universities, copies are are circulating among former insurgents in West Java, and the police, intelligence agencies and military have bought up hundreds of copies. About the only person to have a negative reaction to the book so far is a JI leaderwho was hurt because he wasnt interviewed.Sidney Jones, International Crisis Group A ground-breaking work that will have a major impact on how people view Indonesian jihadism.
