Islam and democracy by John L Esposito( )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 3,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are Islam and democracy on a collision course? Do Islamic movements seek to "hijack democracy"? How have governments in the Muslim world responded to the many challenges of Islam and democracy today?" "A global religious resurgence and calls for greater political participation have been major forces in the post-Cold War period. Across the Muslim world, governments and Islamic movements grapple with issues of democratization and civil society. Islam and Democracy explores the Islamic sources (beliefs and institutions) relevant to the current debate over greater political participation and democratization." "Esposito and Voll use six case studies - Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Sudan - to look at the diversity of Muslim experiences and experiments. At one end of the spectrum, Iran and Sudan represent two cases of militant, revolutionary Islam establishing political systems. In Pakistan and Malaysia, however, the new movements have been recognized and made part of the political process. Egypt and Algeria reveal the coexistence of both extremist and moderate Islamic activism and demonstrate the complex challenges confronting ruling elites. These case studies prove that despite commonalities, differing national contexts and identities give rise to a multiplicity of agendas and strategies."--Jacket

The Control and Management of Religion in Post-Independence, Pancasila Indonesia by Michael Densmoor( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pancasila, the political ideology of the nation state of Indonesia, is an inventive construct which gave form to the Republic of Indonesia. Upon their Declaration of Independence, Indonesia adopted Pancasila as the unifying narrative for their country. Yet Pancasila's simplistic statements needed to be given meaning. Social movement theory looks at how politics uses frames as a means of creating their narrative. Over the past 60 years, three governing periods have framed the first principle (sila) -- belief in One Supreme God -- in ways that have furthered their political agendas. The first period was under Sukarno, a radical nationalist who viewed Pancasila as a means of ensuring territorial integrity by including Christians in the fabric of the newly founded nation. The second period was under Suharto, an uncompromising autocrat who saw Pancasila as a way of establishing a stable state through eliminating the armed Islamic rebellion of Darul Islam and violent Indonesian Communist Party (Partai Komunis Indonesia - PKI). Suharto utilized Pancasila as a means of rejecting both the Islamic and the Atheistic state. The final period is under fluid democratic rulers. Under this period, religion is being globalized and is no longer confined to territorial entities. As religions are freed from territory and culture, Pancasila has taken on the role of creating a national community between religions groups. This thesis analyzes how the three modern eras of Indonesian government - Sukarno, Suharto and various Democratic leaders - have redefined Pancasila to facilitate their vision of the state which allowed them to control and manage religion in support of their vision and agenda
