Politics in Indonesia describes the attitudes, aspirations and frustrations of the key players in Indonesian politics as they struggle to shape the future. The book focuses on the role of political Islam; Douglas E. Ramage shows that the state has been remarkably successful in maintaining secular political institutions in a predominantly Muslim society. He analyses the way in which political questions are framed with reference to the national ideology, the Pancasila.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A highly readable account of the various faces of Indonesian Islam. Drawing on scores of interviews with many leading players, Ramage keenly illustrates the complex and often misunderstood links between politics and Islam in the world's largest Muslim country."
-"Far Eastern Economic Review
"provides an excellent discussion of political debate in Indonesia ... it adds to the literature on the political role of Islam."
-Harold Crouch, Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, Australian National University
"[T]his fine book lays out the terms for understanding a problem that, precisly because Soeharto so betrayed his professed ideals, will haunt Indonesian politics for years to come."
-"The Journal of Asian Studies
