Indonesia Today: Challenges of History
If history can offer a guide to the future, the turn of the century and the crossroads of reformasi presents a timely juncture for examining Indonesia's political, economic, and social history both to evaluate current events and to chart the country's course. Indonesia Today provides an up-to-date overview of economic and political developments in the country. The contributors explore events, processes, and themes in contemporary Indonesia including the evolution of political institutions and democracy, economic development and political economy, religious and social movements, political ideology, and the role of the armed forces. By holding a mirror to historical events, the authors add a rich dimension to our understanding of Indonesia and its problems, free from the exigencies of the present and the prejudices of the past.
