"A spectacular achievement and one of the very best travel books I have read." —Simon Winchester, Wall Street Journal

Declaring independence in 1945, Indonesia said it would "work out the details of the transfer of power etc. as soon as possible."

Author Elizabeth Pisani traveled 26,000 miles in search of the links that bind this disparate nation.
