Reviews

"John T. Sidel has written an original, wise, and lasting book unlike the vast majority of breathless, ambulance-chasing, and shallow studies of ethnic and religious violence. If you are more interested in the deep historical and structural causes of political violence-in the accumulation of social dynamite-rather than the particular match that lights the fuse, then, this is the only book you'll need to understand contemporary Indonesia."-James C. Scott, Sterling Professor of Political Science and Anthropology, Yale University "John T. Sidel's method and conclusions-and, indeed, the very aims of his analysis-are pathbreaking. Riots, Pogroms, Jihad is destined to become one of the most important works in Indonesian studies of the post-Suharto period. It will be critical to scholars and policymakers eager to understand the dynamics of Indonesian politics and society. Political scientists, historians, and anthropologists working outside of Southeast Asia will also find in this book a fruitful guide to developing new ways of thinking about religion and violence elsewhere in the world."-Danilyn Rutherford, University of Chicago "Beneath the many phenomena of violence that John T. Sidel has amply researched, he rightly discerns and repeatedly describes a key role for anxieties about religious identity."-Theodore Friend, Foreign Policy Research Institute, Philadelphia "This is an important and original book that compares diverse contexts and manifestations of religious violence across Indonesia. Riots, Pogroms, Jihad is strongly grounded in empirical evidence and the author's deep familiarity with Indonesia."-Nancy Lee Peluso, University of California, Berkeley
