Indonesian Destinies by Theodore Friend

Book Description

'How can such a gentle people as we are be so murderous?' a prominent Indonesian asks. That question - and the mysteries of the archipelago's vast contradictions - haunt Theodore Friend's remarkable work, a narrative of Indonesia during the last half century, from the post-war revolution against Dutch imperialism to the unrest of today. Part history, part meditation, Indonesian Destinies penetrates events that gave birth to the world's fourth largest nation and assesses the continuing dangers that threnten to tear it apart.
