In 1998, Indonesias military government collapsed, creating a crisis that many believed would derail its democratic transition. Yet the worlds most populous Muslim country continues to receive high marks from democracy-ranking organizations. In this volume, political scientists, religious scholars, legal theorists, and anthropologists examine Indonesias transition compared to Chile, Spain, India, and potentially Tunisia, and democratic failures in Yugoslavia, Egypt, and Iran. Chapters explore religion and politics and Muslims support for democracy before change.
