Book Launch ‘Islamic Populism in Indonesia and the Middle East’, 6 June 2016

Join us for the launch of the newly published book, “Islamic Populism in Indonesia and the Middle East” (Cambridge University Press, 2016) by Professor Vedi Hadiz, Convenor of Asian Studies at the Asia Institute, the University of Melbourne. This provocative new study compares the evolution of Islamic populism in Indonesia, the country with the largest Muslim population in the world, to the Middle East. Utilising approaches from historical sociology and political economy, Professor Hadiz argues that competing strands of Islamic politics can be understood as the product of contemporary struggles over power, material resources and the result of conflict across a variety of social and historical contexts.
