Indonesia: Society and Politics

Ganganath Jha (Author)
Synopsis This is the modest attempt towards understanding the intricacies of Indonesian society and politics. Indonesia is witnessing transition from authoritarianism to democracy. Political culture is changing and multi-party system have emerged. Democratic institutions are evolving. The government policies are rapidly evolved to cope with growing economic and security challenges. However, the threat of instability looms large because of ethnic and socio-economic divergences. Radical Islamic and Christian organizations are vocal against each other and some terror groups are active. There is a growing demand to declare Islam as the state religion and dilute the secular framework of the 1945 constitution. Dual role of the armed forces are abolished but their influence on national politics remain substantial. Political parties are solely interested in power and they don’t want to take a clear stand against religious fanatics. All these issues have been analysed in the book to make it relevant for all those engaged in teaching and research of the subject.
