Item description for Of Self and Injustice: Autobiography and Repression in Modern Indonesia by C. W. Watson...

Since the downfall of Soeharto in 1998 many autobiographical writings have appeared in Indonesia from those who were marginalized by his New Order regime. This book examines representative autobiographies of several such individuals: two ex-political prisoners who describe themselves as Muslim Communists; two writers of the left, one a woman in a senior position in the left-wing women's organization, Gerwani, and one a well-known male novelist who spent years in exile in China and Russia; two Muslim opponents of Soeharto, one an intellectual and the other a political campaigner; and finally, two collections of short autobio-graphies by the younger generation, one a group involved in social welfare action, the other a group of dedicated young Muslims.

Each autobiography is preceded by a brief account of the historical and cultural context of the writing of the text. In the analysis of the works themselves the emphasis is on trying to represent the implicit tone of the narrative as much as its overt contents. Both general and specialist readers are invited to reflect on the memories and experiences of significant participant-observers as a mode of understanding a recent period in Indonesian history.
