Postcolonial Disorders

University of California Press

This chapter explores the rise in political and religious vigilance in post-New Order Lombok, Indonesia, and the role that militias played in denying Soleh, a nationalist activist in Lombok, the social horizons he once relied upon to define his political and personal reality. It presents a case to examine how social disorder and political violence are experienced by a leading intellectual who has been deeply involved in Indonesian politics on the island of Lombok. The chapter also discusses an alternative type of political madness in which individual paranoia mirrors local and national political events.

Keywords:   political vigilance, religious vigilance, Lombok, Indonesia, Soleh, social disorder, political violence, political madness
