ISLAM and Ideology in the Emerging Indonesian State by Howard M Federspiel pdf free download. Four general concerns absorbed the attention of Indonesian Muslim thinkers, activists and legalists during the sixty years of the twentieth century: i.e., seeking Islamic accommodation with national and local cultures, installing standard Islamic belief and practice as the modus operandi in the Indonesian region, devising appropriate political structures that both reflect Islamic values and promote Islamic life, and adapting modern thought and technology consistent with Indonesian-Muslim culture.

Like Muslims everywhere, Indonesian Muslims have responded in different ways to such concerns. One major grouping has identified itself closely with traditional Middle eastern Islamic beliefs, ritual and jurisprudence and attempted to make local culture, intellectual thought, and political institutions conform to that religious system. This grouping is generally known as santri in Indonesian culture and in this book the term will translated as “purist Muslim.” A second grouping remained tied to indigenous Southeast Asian customs and values, have sometimes reshaped Islamic beliefs and ritual to mesh with some of the important features of these indigenous values, and have accepted technology and favored political solutions that seem to fit with this value system.

This grouping, which has a wide number of different terms applied to it in Indonesian, is referred to as “nominal Muslim” here, largely to juxtapose it against the “purist Muslim.” A third group has responded to Western secular thinking about the nation-state, the importance of nationally-evolved civic values, and the uses of technology for the creation of an affluent national economy. This grouping is identified as “nationalist,” in this monograph. The interaction of these three attitudes has been a primary factor in the particular development of Indonesian social and political life over the past century.

There are obvious problems with these generalities, but some such categorization is necessary to identify groupings in Indonesian life. Significantly these generalizations made here fit with the attempts of other writers on Indonesian Islam, even though terms and nomenclature differ slightly and the categorizations vary somewhat.
