Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0333761111, Hardcover)

Authoritarianism, power, domination and political identity in 1990s Indonesia are examined here. The author seeks to clarify the relationship between knowledge and "real" politics. Drawing upon the thought of Edward Said and Michel Foucault, he argues that understandings of Indonesian political life are profoundly shaped by particular approaches to culture, tradition, ethnicity, Cold War politics and modernity. Power, domination and the effects of authoritarianism on identity are key areas of discussion in this analysis of Indonesia and the study of its politics.
