Based on extensive ethnographic research, this book examines how the
Islamic community in Java, Indonesia, is actively negotiating both
modernity and tradition in the contexts of nation-building,
globalization, and a supposed clash of civilizations.
The pesantren
community, so-called because it is centered around an educational
institution called the pesantren, uses education as a central arena
for dealing with globalization and the construction and maintenance of
an Indonesian Islamic identity. However, the community's efforts to
wrestle with these issues extend beyond education into the public
sphere in general and specifically in the area of leadership and
politics. The case material is used to understand Muslim strategies
and responses to civilizational contact and conflict. Scholars,
educated readers, and advanced undergraduates interested in Islam,
religious education, the construction of religious identity in the
context of national politics, and globalization will find this work
