Item description for Indonesia in the Soeharto Years: Issues, Incidents and Images by John H. McGlynn, Oscar Motuloh, Suzanne Charle, Jimmy Carter, Shuhei Fujita & Helton G. Baynes...

During much of Soeharto's thirty-two years of reign as president (1967-1998) Indonesia was seen as a successful test-case in third world development, a wayward pariah turned into a shining example of modern economic planning and democracy. His New Order government won awards from the United Nations for the country's advances in family planning. The nation's massive development plans won the applause of the World Bank and international financiers. In fact, behind the New Order's benign facade was an intricate web of nepotism, corruption, and a persistent and wide-ranging repression of civil liberties, the full scope of which is now just beginning to become apparent.

Indonesia in the Soeharto Years delves into many of the issues and incidents that shaped the nation, from the grim years of 1964 and 1966, up until the nation's first direct election for the president in 2004. Photographs by many of the nation's top photojournalists and essays by economists, government leaders, journalists, activists, and scholars provide unique insights into the politics, culture, and history of Indonesia under the New Order.

Indonesia in the Soeharto Years also tracks the years after Soeharto's epic resignation in 1998, "the historic, very rapid, and so far very successful moves by the Indonesian people to implement an honest, transparent and safe democracy" as former U.S. President Jimmy Carter notes in the book's Foreword.

With more than 50 short essays, 80 photographic series and extended captions, and 500 historical photographs, this book is an essential document for anyone interested in the politics and culture of modern Indonesia. It is also a publishing milestone: with the work of 125 photographers under one cover, it offers the first comprehensive pictorial look at contemporary Indonesian history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Indonesia in the Soeharto Years: Issues, Incidents and Images?

Memory as plot...  Jul 30, 2007
There are no countries with out tragedy. We have our own today. Perhaps Indonesia has had more than its share. This is a remarkable book. Fifty essays, 125 photographers, 500 historical photographs. No book published exists like it on such an important subject as Indonesia. I have travelled extensively through Indonesia and I am never ceased to be amazed at the kindness of the people and the beauty of the country even against such odds.
Many authors, lots of photos...  Jun 3, 2007
This is a multi-authored book... many short essays accompanied by the best photojournalism of the Soeharto period.
