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 work, a narrative of Indonesia during the second half of the 20th century, from the post-war revolution against Dutch imperialism to the unrest at the beginning of the 21st century. Part history, part meditation on a place and a past observed first-hand, this book penetrates events that gave birth to the world's fourth largest nation and assesses the continuing dangers that threaten to tear it apart.
