Kurzbeschreibung

The socio-religio-political situation in Indonesia and other Muslim-majority countries of Southeast Asia is very complex. Official and societal pressures have pushed the mainstream Islamic discourse from moderation towards unprecedented orthodoxy. This edited volume seeks to cast some light on the general overall process of Islamization that actually started more than half a millennium ago, and aims in eight individual chapters to explore some forms of Islam that currently exist in Southeast Asia, putting a special focus on those that are mainly positioned on the fringe - outside the mainstream. "Built from serious, long-term engagement with the religious communities on the ground in Southeast Asia, these studies bring to light Islamic communities that have not been fully understood. The authors use a wide variety of methods to approach groups that need more attention. This volume pushes the boundaries of our knowledge of the diversity - in outlook, experience, and aspiration - of the region's Muslims." - Dr. Kevin W. Fogg, Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies
