Review

"... this is a highly timely collection of essays. The editors and contributors (the core of whom hail from Australia and Indonesia) to this book have trod such a tightrope with admirable deftness. Each chapter is succinct, well expressed and supported by sound supporting evidence... The book helps to put some shape on the tremendously complex changes in the reconfiguration of political power currently taking place in Indonesia. Several of its chapters would make excellent required reading for students of a range of social scientific disciplines focusing upon Southeast Asia, we well as making interesting reading for the specialist" (Aseasuk News).

About the Publication

The success or failure of democratic reform in Indonesia is a key question for Indonesia itself and for the surrounding region. Although Indonesia's transition to democracy holds out the promise of good governance, this cannot be taken for granted as the recent military takeover in Thailand shows. This book is about the challenge of making democracy work in Asia's third-largest nation.
           Co-published by Institute of Southeast Asian Studies and the Indonesia Project of the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, The Australian National University.
