This groundbreaking book shows with rare clarity that Indonesia's current terrorist problems have a long and complex history. Based on a remarkable array of sources, many of which have never been publicly cited, Solahudin’s rigorous account fills 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. Available for the first time in English in this translation by Dave McRae, The Roots of Terrorism in Indonesia is an in-depth investigation of the development of jihadism from the earliest years of Indonesian independence to the terrorist bombings of the past decade.
