Description - Indonesian Idioms and Expressions by Christopher Torchia

This is a language book based on learning about Indonesian through the texture and content of its language, rather than the headlines - often bad ones - that often dominate perceptions of the vast country. The chapters that hit on various linguistic themes, among them are wisdom, characters, animals, food, slang, family affairs, and politics. Entries include the expression in Bahasa Indonesia, a translation, an equivalent expression in English, and an explanation if necessary. Contents include: Introduction; Part I: Life Forms - Creatures; Characters; Body Language; Part II: Power and Conflict; Authoritarian Rule; Money and Politics; Protest Fever; A History of Violence; Part III: Tradition; Faith and Fortune; A Matter of Taste; and Family Affairs.
