Summary

The youth demographic is a large and growing cohort in Indonesia, and adolescents embody the currents of social change. Throughout the twentieth century they were significant agents of social protest leading to social and political transformation. Now they are important because they spearhead not just globalization and a growing consumer youth culture in Indonesia but also the Islamization movement. This book explores both the inner worlds and social selves of Indonesian adolescents.The authors offer a long-term knowledge of Indonesian society and culture in various parts of Indonesia, and they discuss national patterns and trends. Grounded in two field sites, the book enables an analysis of young people's local ethnic and religious identities and their commitment to the Indonesian nation-state. The first comprehensive study of young people in contemporary Indonesia, it addresses gender relations, the importance of education for youth and youth engagement with popular culture and the moral issue concerning the sexual propriety of young people.
