Format: Paperback
I work with the government in Indonesia from time to time on financial matters. Very often, things that happen here are not understandable - parties start acting in ways that seem to run counter to our assessment of the situation. This book provided a level of detail and enough history so that, all of a sudden, seemingly arbitrary acts by gov't officals started making sense. I think that is the strongest compliment I can pay to this book.
It covers the politics, scandals and events from the tail end of Suharto to the election of Megawati. I think his assessment of the future is a little too gloomy, but his description of the past has been eagerly read by the Indonesian nationals I work with - most of whom hadn't ever gotten a full explanation of that time period.
