Julia’s Jihad: Tales of the Politically, Sexually and Religiously Incorrect: Living in the Chaos of the Biggest Muslim Democracy.

Julia’s Jihad is a selection of more than a hundred of Julia columns published between 2006 and 2013. Most made their first appearance as her Wednesday column in the English-language The Jakarta Post (‘Julia’s WC’). Others come from the English language edition of the weekly Tempo.



The sweep of topics covered in her columns is much too broad to attempt to summarise in a short review like this.
Charles A. Coppel   in The Provocative Julia Suryakusuma on the Rampage (Inside Indonesia, Nov 30, 2013)
Julia writes with greater authority, avoids unsubstantiated conspiracy theories and uses humor to make her writing so much more palatable.
Roy Simson   in Julia’s War On Almost Everything (Jakarta Post, Jun 30, 2013)
