Since 1998, which marked the end of the thirty-three-year New Order regime under President Suharto, there has been a dramatic increase in ethnic conflict and violence in Indonesia. In his innovative and persuasive account, Jacques Bertrand argues that conflicts in Maluku, Kalimantan, Aceh, Papua, and East Timur were a result of the New Order's narrow and constraining reinterpretation of Indonesia's 'national model'. The author shows how, at the end of the 1990s, this national model came under intense pressure at the prospect of institutional transformation, a reconfiguration of ethnic relations, and an increase in the role of Islam in Indonesia's political institutions. It was within the context of these challenges, that the very definition of the Indonesian nation and what it meant to be Indonesian came under scrutiny. The book sheds light on the roots of religious and ethnic conflict at a turning point in Indonesia's history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... excellent and thoroughly researched ... This is a very well written book that should be read not only by Indonesianists ... Bertrand's exploration of the links between an increasingly politicized Muslim community, the state and emerging conceptions of nationhood is particularly timely ... This is an important and valuable book, made more so by its implict comparativist perspective and it could be read with profit as much in the Balkans as in Southeast Asia.' Ethnic & Racial Studies
"...a set that will stand as the most valuable resource on British theater for some time to come. Essential." Choice
"a valuable contribution to scholarship through nineteen fine essays" Sixteenth Century Journal
"This work makes delightful reading" Renaissance Quarterly Frederick Tollini, Santa Clara University
