This book is the first to deal with the specific threat of terrorism in Southeast Asia after the Bali blasts of 12 October 2002, and in the wake of the US-led war on Iraq. It offers a comprehensive and critical examination of the ideological nature, socio-political motivations, trans-regional linkages, geographic loci and functional characteristics of the terrorist threat in the region. The contributors include leading scholars of political Islam in the region, renowned terrorism and regional security analysts, as well as highly regarded regional journalists and commentators from two of Asia's top think tanks -- the Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies and the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, both based in Singapore. This represents a formidable and hitherto unequalled combination of expertise.
