View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Spanning a wide variety of contemporary issues, this text offers a detailed glimpse of one of the world's largest and least understood nations. It chronicles the economic development Indonesia has enjoyed under the 27-year leadership of President Soeharto, as well as the difficult challenges which lie ahead. Using first-hand information, the author gives life to the heated debates on economic policy, corruption and the controversial role of ethnic-Chinese entrepreneurs. The book analyzes the political demands of Indonesia's Muslim community, the mishandled incorporation of East Timor, the emerging debate on human rights, and the thorny problem of arranging a smooth transition of power. The underlying theme is the widening gap between an increasingly modernized economy and a rigid political system that is struggling to keep up with the times.
