Drawing on interviews with dozens of jihadi activists as well as diverse documentary materials and ethnographic fieldwork, this book situates the rise of Laskar Jihad against the backdrop of Saudi-funded salafi networks in Indonesian Islam, and within the context of developments and trends in Indonesian politics at the turn of the twenty-first century. The book is notable for its account of recruitment into Laskar Jihad, which emphasizes the role of jihad as a rubric for Muslims of humble backgrounds and limited Islamic education to achieve new forms of identity, meaning, and status.
