My Friend The Fanatic (Travels With A Radical Islamist)
My Friend The Fanatic (Travels With A Radical Islamist)
Description
From the Jacket

In October 2002 Sadanand Dhume found himself in a place most foreigners were trying to flee Bali. Powerful explosions the previous night had ripped through two tourist nightclubs killing more than two hundred people. That evening he visited what remained of the Sari Club and stood among piles of ash and blackened beer bottles wondering about the future of a country long regarded as immune to such carnage.

My friend the Fanatic is a portrait of Indonesia the world’s most populous Muslim country painted through the travels of a pair of unlikely protagonists, Dhume is a foreign correspondent a Princeton educated Indian atheist with a fondness for john unlike and an interest in economic development. His companion Herry Nurdi is a young Inlamist who hero worships Osama bin Laden.

Does Herry represent the future for Indonesia? By turns disturbing and funny my friend the fanatic fulfills a deep hunger for knowledge about a fascinating land in a time of profound change.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
