  • About the Book
  • Despite a severe economic crisis, social unrest and growing pressure for political change in Indonesia, President Suharto’s hold on power seemed secure. Recent events have proved this otherwise. By describing the unfolding events since 1996, tracing the economic and social background, analysing the government's response and evaluating the actors most likely to shape Indonesia's future, this study provides key insights for understanding current and imminent processes of political change in Indonesia.

    “This particular volume is an extremely useful account of the events surrounding Suharto’s fall from office, and his fall from grace.” —Journal of Southeast Asian Studies

    “This book provides a useful, clearly written and thoroughly researched account…It is an essential addition to any teaching library, and indispensible aid in teaching about the period for university undergraduate courses.” —Rima
