Faith in Writing: Forty Years of Essays

by Goenawan Mohamad (Author), Jennifer Lindsay (Translator)

Through the worst days of Indonesia’s authoritarianism, in the face of the trauma of great violence, through the euphoria of democratic transition and ensuing disillusionment, one Indonesian writer has never lost faith in the act of writing. Goenawan Mohamad’s short essays have a broad readership, through a weekly column published since 1971 for Tempo, the Indonesian weekly magazine that he founded in the same year. Goenawan’s writings are a shared conversation with difference, bringing nuance and sympathy to difficult histories, introducing doubt to damaging certainties, applying clarity of thought and action to times of doubt.

Activist, journalist, editor, essayist, poet, commentator, theatre director and playwright, Goenawan Mohamad’s output is staggering and his vision both uniquely Indonesian and completely universal, setting his work apart from his contemporaries in the region. Goenawan is, indisputably, the leading political thinker and observer in Indonesia, the most populous Muslim land on earth. In this translation and selection of his finest essays, readers unfamiliar to Indonesia will find a voice that also speaks to the urgent global issues of the day.

About the Author
Goenawan Mohamad (b 1941) is an acclaimed Indonesian writer and man of letters.

Jennifer Lindsay has been translating Goenawan’s columns since 1992.

LIFE Holy Lands: One Place Three Faiths


In examining a significant contemporary issue as the calendar approaches the holiday season, Life goes to "the Holy Land," the Middle East, to depict the places considered sacred by Jews, Christians and Muslims. Where did these faiths spring from, and what is the story that has these Holy Lands in such close proximity? The photography from these places is beautiful and inspirational; you can feel the ancient past as modern-day pilgrims pay homage. Crucial figures in each religion (not just Moses, Christ and Muhammad, but figures that have a large crossover role in the story) will be examined and explained. Beautiful artwork will embellish the photography, which will be, as always, the heart of this passionate "Life" book

Judul: The Gay Science: Sains Yang Mengasyikkan

Penulis: Friedrich Nietzsche

Alih Bahasa: Risalatul Hukmi

Penerbit: Antinomi


Buku ini adalah karya Nietzsche yang paling personal, yang menyajikan seluruh pengalaman subtil dalam pergulatannya dengan rasa sakit yang diterimanya sebagai anugerah besar.

Dalam buku inilah ide tentang Kematian Tuhan pertamakali dikisahkan Nietzsche dalam sebuah alegori Orang Sinting, yang kemudian disusul pula dengan sebuah proposisi tentang Perulangan Abadi.

Bagaimana seandainya keseluruhan filsafat sampai saat ini tidaklah berdiri pada pancang kebenaran, melainkan sesuatu yang lain. Barangkali kita boleh menyebutnya: kesehatan, masa depan, pertumbuhan, kuasa, kehidupan.

(Friedrich Nietzsche)

Chinese Ways of Being Muslim - Negotiating Ethnicity and Religiosity in Indonesia (NIAS Monographs)


Many recent works on Muslim societies have pointed to a growing ‘de-culturalization’ and ‘purification’ of Islamic practices. Instead, by exploring themes such as architectural designs, preaching activities, political engagement and cultural celebrations, this book describes and analyses the formation and negotiation of Chinese Muslim cultural identities in Indonesia today — a rapidly evolving environment where there are multiple ways of being or not being Chinese and Muslim.

Chinese Muslim leaders strategically promote their unique identities by rearticulating their histories and cultivating ties with Muslims in China. Yet, their intentional mixing of Chineseness and Islam does not reflect all aspects of the multilayered and multifaceted identities of ordinary Chinese Muslims - there is not a single Chinese way of being Muslim in Indonesia. Moreover, the assertion of Chinese identity and Islamic religiosity does not necessarily imply racial segregation and religious exclusion, but can act against them.

The study thus helps us to understand better the cultural politics of Muslim and Chinese identities in Indonesia, and gives insights into the possibilities and limitations of ethnic and religious cosmopolitanism in contemporary societies.


“For much of modern Indonesian history, the social categories of Muslim and Chinese were seen as incompatible; to convert to Islam was to lose one’s Chineseness. This engagingly written book provides a powerful ethnographic account of just why this is changing, and of what it means to be both Chinese and Muslim in Indonesia. This fascinating study also offers insight into processes even more general in our world: how we moderns balance multiple self-identities in an age of plurality and unprecedented mobility.” – Robert W. Hefner, Boston University

“Hew’s Chinese Ways of Being Muslim blows apart the usual identifications between ethnicity and religion in Indonesia. This pathbreaking book paints an intriguing portrait of how Chinese Muslims in Indonesia are charting a form of Islamic piety that is both assertive and inclusive. A first.” – Engseng Ho, Duke University

“In this adroit analysis of Chinese ways of being Muslim in Indonesia – from celebrity preachers and hybrid mosques to Chinese holidays and conversion controversies – Hew Wai Weng sheds important light on the religious and political entanglements between Islam, ethnicity, and nation. In doing so, this book admirably fills a lamentable lacuna of scholarship on Chinese Muslims in post-authoritarian Indonesia.” – James B. Hoesterey, Emory University

Protecting the Sacred: An Analysis of Local Perspectives on Holy Site Protection in Four Areas in Indonesia


Pages: IX+94 Pages| Size: 16 x 23,5 cm | ISBN: 978-602-72686-4-7| Year Publishing: Januari 2016


Indonesia is home to communities of believers in the world’s major religions and traditions, in addition to various indigenous religions and other smaller world religions. Holy sites, varying from mosques to temples to churches to tombs, can be found in all corners of the archipelago. Despite this abundance of holy sites, there is a general lack of knowledge, understanding, and respect for these sacred spaces. Holy sites, particularly houses of worship and other sacred places, are often the target of violence during conflicts in Indonesia. That is why there is an urgent need to promote the significance of public understanding of houses of worship and holy sites.

This book investigates three key questions: (a) To what extent can the Universal Code of Conduct on Holy Sites be used to campaign for respect and protection towards houses of worship and holy sites in Indonesia? (b) What are the public’s perceptions and public knowledge about houses of worship and holy sites as well as its attitude towards the recognition and respect for them? (c) How does social change affect the relationship between religions and the protection of houses of worship and holy sites in certain areas of Indonesia? The investigation took place in four areas of Indonesia: Manado, Pontianak, Bali, and Bekasi.
The publication of this book is collaboration among Center for Religious and Cross-cultural Studies (CRCS), Graduate School, Gadjah Mada University Indonesia, Search for Common Ground (SfCG) in Indonesia, and Royal Norwegian Embassy in Jakarta.

Abraham's Children: Liberty and Tolerance in an Age of Religious Conflict


Scarcely any country in today's world can claim to be free of intolerance. Israel and Palestine, Northern Ireland, Sudan, the Balkans, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, and the Caucasus are just some of the areas of intractable conflict apparently inspired or exacerbated by religious differences. Can devoted Jews, Christians, or Muslims remain true to their own fundamental beliefs and practices, yet also find paths toward liberty, tolerance, and respect for those of other faiths?

In this vitally important book, fifteen influential practitioners of the Abrahamic religions address religious liberty and tolerance from the perspectives of their own faith traditions. Former president Jimmy Carter, Rabbi Arik Ascherman, Indonesia’s first democratically elected president, Abdurrahman Wahid, and the other writers draw on their personal experiences and on the sacred writings that are central in their own religious lives. Rather than relying on "pure reason," as secularists might prefer, the contributors celebrate religious traditions and find within them a way toward mutual peace, uncompromised liberty, and principled tolerance. Offering a counterbalance to incendiary religious leaders who cite Holy Writ to justify intolerance and violence, the contributors reveal how tolerance and respect for believers in other faiths stand at the core of the Abrahamic traditions.

I Will Send My Song: Kammu Vocal Genres in the Singing of Kam Raw (Kammu Worlds)


Today, the Kammu are an upland people mainly found in Laos, Yunnan, Thailand, Burma and Vietnam. This people - who have retained their orally based culture through to the present day - provide an example of complex sung poetry that has seldom been studied in detail.

What this volume offers is an ethnomusicological presentation of one person's vocal performance of rather highly varied sets of words in different manners of per form-ance, and the use of these competences in communication with other singers. This orally transmitted form of singing is unique to the Kammu but is related to a much larger complex in Southeast Asia. It will thus be of interest to a wide group of musicologists.

The Education of Ethnic Minorities: The Case of the Malaysian Chinese


This is a case study of the dilemmas of minority education in plural societies, focusing on the complex phenomenon of the education of the Malaysian Chinese. The Malaysian education system accommodates minority interests by allowing for Tamil and Chinese-medium primary schools. But since Malay is the main medium of instruction, particularly at the secondary and tertiary levels, most minority students undergo a transitional bilingual education.


The authors review the background to this segmented system as well as relevant literature on minority education. Both colonial era and post-independence language and education policies have been contested and divisive. While nation-building remains a key concern, education and language policies often reflect majority–minority relations, rather than being focused purely on pedagogic goals—or interethnic socialization and integration.

The Chinese educationists have been a driving force in these developments. But their vision of a complete system of Chinese-medium education, as this book shows, is not fully supported by Chinese parents. Furthermore, the flawed implementation of transitional bilingual education has resulted in, among other problems, linguistic dysfunctionality. A substantial number of Chinese students have such a poor grasp of Malay that they drop out of secondary school, while overall Chinese-language competency also deteriorates after primary school.

This objective, scholarly analysis should be read by educationists, scholars, journalists, policy-makers, and parents who seek to learn more about the history, context, and longer-term implications of the education of the Chinese in multiethnic Malaysia.

Badingsanak Banjar-Dayak: Identitas Agama dan Ekonomi Etnisitas di Kalimantan Selatan


Menyebut etnis Dayak pada hari-hari ini barangkali lebih gampang membangkitkan imajinasi yang tidak mengenakkan di pikiran banyak orang, terutama setelah sejumlah konflik komunal berdarah yang melibatkan etnis ini dalam kurang lebih sepuluh tahun terakhir. Tetapi laporan penelitan ini menyajiikan sesuatu yang lain, yakni kemampuan orang Dayak Meratus (dan juga orang Banjar) membangun kapasitas mereka untuk hidup berdampingan secara damai dalam kondisi yang tidak sepenuhnya memuaskan.

Penelitian ini berusaha melihat relasi antara etnis Dayak dan Banjar: bagaimana negosiasi-negosiasi identitas terjadi di antara keduanya, apa saja potensi-potensi konflik antarkedua etnis tersebut, dan secara umum kaitannya dengan berbagai faktor yang dapat menyebabkan terciptanya hubungan baik antara etnis Dayak Meratus dan Banjar atau sebaliknya.

Di desa Loksado, dengan komposisi penduduk yang menganut tiga agama relatif seimbang, konflik dan negosiasi identitas cenderung lebih menonjol. Konflik tampaknya lebih potensial antara penganut Islam dan Kristen, ketimbang antara penganut kedua agama tersebut dengan penganut agama lokal (Agama Balian/Kaharingan). Dalam pola hubungan antaretnis dan agama itu, negara cukup berperan, terutama dalam kaitannya dengan kebijakan pembangunan untuk "masyarakat terasing" yang melibatkan misionaris Kristen, penentuan agama-agama resmi yang tidak mengakui agama lokal, dan keterlibatan aparat negara yang didominasi oleh orang Banjar Muslim dalam membantu perkembangan dakwah Islam di kawasan ini.

Hubungan sosial di sini memang tidak selamanya harmonis. Kadang-kadang ketegangan terjadi, terutama menyangkut soal perbatasan tanah dan kebakaran lahan, namun belum pernah sampai mewujud dalam bentuk konflik komunal yang keras. Adanya "pembagian" ragam mata pencaharian tampaknya berhasil mencegah terjadinya kesenjangan sosial-ekonomi yang menyolok di antara para penduduk dengan tiga identitas agama tersebut, dan dengan demikian ketegangan tidak menjelma menjadi konflik yang keras.

Ramadhan di Jawa: Pandangan Dari Luar

Terjemahan dari Ramadan in Java: The Joy & Jihad of Ritual Fasting (Lund Studies in History of Religions)


Buku ini membahas bulan suci Ramadan di Jawa dari sudut pandang orang asing. Ia bukan buku pedoman atau buku petunjuk, tapi lebih terfokus pada pembahasan bulan suci Ramadan di Jawa dari pelbagai sudut. Perhatian diarahkan tidak saja kepada ketentuan fikih dan syariat Islam, yang dalam buku ini disebut Islam normatif, tapi juga kepada bagaimana bulan penuh berkah ini dipresentasikan dalam tulisan kontemporer di Indonesia dan bagaimana bulan magfirah ini ditunaikan oleh kaum Muslimin di Indonesia, khususnya di Jawa.

Jadi, buku ini tak hanya membahas ayat suci al-Quran serta hadis yang bersangkutan dengan Ramadan, tapi juga bagaimana ketentuan fikih ditafsirkan kaum intelektual di Indonesia masa kini, serta bagaimana orang Islam secara umum menafsirkannya dan mengimplementasikannya dalam hidup sehari-hari mereka.

Secara keseluruhan buku ini merupakan Pandangan dari Luar sebab ditulis oleh orang non-Indonesia. Penulis mendapatkan informasi dengan berpartisipasi dalam kehidupan orang Jawa yang Islam sejauh mungkin dan cenderung menggunakan-istilah Tord Olsson-pengertian melalui partisipasi dan pengalaman melalui praktik.

Dalam karya Ramadan in Java: The Joy and Jihad of Ritual Fasting,
bulan Ramadhan dengan ritus-ritusnya di Jawa merupakan fokus utama.
