Description - Indonesian Politics and Society by David Bourchier
This book provides a unique way of understanding social and political change in Indonesia over more than three decades: it provides a window into sexual thought and political concerns of a wide range of actors intimately involved in the struggle to shape modern Indonesia following the triumph of Soeharto's new order in the 1960s. It introduces and assesses the thinking of statists and organicists, modernising pluralists, social radicals, and of political Islam, during a period of often tumultuous change and violent conflict - beneath a surface of calm. It also relates the ideas of the major protagonists in political struggles to important events in Indonesia until the aftermath of the fall of Soeharto. The bulk of the material presented is made accessible for the first time to English-language readers. As such, the book privides an invaluable resource for scholars of modern Indonesia, and for those who seek to understand trhe ideas that continue to be relevant to the actors currently reshaping the country's social and political terrain.
