Summary
"Islamic extremism in Southeast Asia has moved beyond a matter of local concern to one of global significance - as the events of the past decade have so clearly demonstrated. Drawing on intensive on-the-ground investigation and interviews with key militants, Zachary Abuza explains the emergence of radical Islamist groups in the region, examines Al-Qaida's role as organizational catalyst, and explores individual and multilateral state responses to the growing - and increasingly violent - Islamic political consciousness."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Islam in Southeast Asia has typically been seen as supportive of moderation and pluralism, but according to Abuza (international politics, Simmons College) the growth of radical Islam and connections to Al Qaeda in the region pose a great danger to the West. He describes the origins of a number of Islamic groups that he claims have connections to Al Qaeda, arguing that many were groups that had legitimate grievances but were then co-opted by Osama Bin Laden's organization. The forms of organization are analyzed and the reactions of regional governments are described. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
