This book focuses on how diverse developments are reflected in the rise of the security groups in Bali, Indonesia.

Bali's security groups pose many interesting questions.

Why did they put up so many huge posters around the streets of southern Bali promoting themselves?

Are their claims to represent the community plausible or are they "gangs"?

How are they shaped by Indonesia's violent past? How does Hinduism affect their gender politics? Do they promote illiberal populism or ethnic and religious tolerance?

Does their central role in money politics prevent local democratization?Rather than write bottom-up history or bring the state back in, this collection as a whole draws on the ideas that circulate among leaders.

These circulating ideas construct contemporary politics around both reinterpretations of old practices and responses to problems around tourism, gender, populism, religion, and democracy.
