by Damien Kingsbury

Hardcover(Older Edition)



Indonesian political life encompasses power plays; making and winning fabulous fortunes; loyalty and betrayal; jealousy and intrigue; and violence both symbolic and real. Charting the rise—and fall— of President Suharto, this book provides an up-to-date overview of such contentious issues as the political role of the armed forces, corruption, human rights, economic development, and national unity. Based on interviews and conversations with insiders, this book is the most accessible and up-to-date account available of the political history and prospects of the world's largest Muslim nation.
