Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a significant contribution to the discussion on the development of law, democracy, and human rights...Melissa Crouch is right to claim in her abstract that this book will be ‘of interest to students and scholars of law and society in Southeast Asia; Islam and the state: politics of the courts; and the legal regulation of religious diversity’. It is undoubtedly a book deserving of wide readership." - Euis Nurlaelawati, Journal of Islamic Studies 2015

"This book is valuable as a study of the evolving character of extremist Islam in Indonesia, but its more important contribution lies in what it reveals about Indonesian democracy.." - Mark CammackJournal of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Southeast Asia (2015) 377-379. 

"It is a significant contribution to the discussion on the development of law, democracy, and human rights...Melissa Crouch is right to claim in her abstract that this book will be ‘of interest to students and scholars of law and society in Southeast Asia; Islam and the state: politics of the courts; and the legal regulation of religious diversity’. It is undoubtedly a book deserving of wide readership." - Euis Nurlaelawati, Journal of Islamic Studies.

"This book is a significant contribution to the study of law and religion in Indonesia [...] For Crouch, while democracy has opened greater avenues for both Muslim and Christian communities to assert their democratic rights and advocate their respective interests, it has also cultivated religious majoritarianism at the expense of minority rights. [...] one striking feature of the book…is the three case studies. All of these case studies are creatively derived from the broader theme of proselytization that is at the heart of the book. [...] Crouch demonstrates from these three case studies that courts in Indonesia are still grappling with deeply rooted problems that have continued throughout and beyond the democratic transition." Dian A. H. Shah, International Journal of Constitutional Law (2018) 16(2).
