Islam in Indonesia – Dissertation and Study
In my opinion, any effort to improve the quality of life of Indonesian should start with understanding the culture of Indonesian people. Understanding the culture, the social structure, the history of Indonesian people is very important. To be more specific any social study in Indonesia especially on political should include the study on Islam, which be practiced by around 80% population of Indonesia.
That is why I really appreciate of the effort on the study of Barkin (2014) on commercial islam and television in Indonesia, on Islamic Post-Traditionalism by Kersten (2014), or Political Islam by Ufen (2009). Also a number of Indonesian researcher to give effort expanding the science.
