Book launch: 'The Roots of Terrorism in Indonesia: from Darul Islam to Jema'ah Islamiyah'

On 14 August 2013 the Lowy Institute and ANU jointly launched the English translation of 'The Roots of Terrorism in Indonesia', by best selling Indonesia author Solahudin.

Based on a remarkable array of original sources, the book shows how the ideas and form of activism that lead to the Bali Bombings in 2002 have a long and complex history, stretching back to the Darul Islam revolt in the 1950s.

The translation and publication of the book was supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Speakers at the launch included Professor Gareth Evans, Chancellor of the Australian National University, Allaster Cox, First Assistant Secretary, South-East Asia Division, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the book's author Solahudin.
