With over 500 ethnic groups living together on an archipelago of 13,670 islands, it is hard to find another country as diverse and colourful as Indonesia. One of the most populous countries in the world, Tanah Air Kita (the native name for Indonesia) boasts more than 40,000 species of flora and many animal species that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. Volcanoes and glaciers, rain forests and savannah grasslands, man-eating Komodo dragons and the one-foot-tall Lesser mouse deer all call Indonesia home. This book explores this fascinating nation, its people and government, language and arts, food and festivals. It also takes a long look at how the country's economy has affected its environment and examines some issues which this troubled nation is facing.
