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.

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
