Item description for Indonesia Handbook, 3rd (Footprint - Travel Guides) by Joshua Eliot...
It's been said a thousand times: Indonesia is an unlikely country. Of all the countries of Asia, it is the hardest to corral. There is no point in looking for a shared history prior to the colonial period, or a shared culture, or even a certain uniformity of environment. Divided between over 13,000 islands, hundreds of languages and cultures, several time zones, and spread over an expanse of sea linking Asia with Australasia, it is truly a kaleidoscopic place.

Adequate for a Short Trip Mar 24, 2004
This guide only really covers the major, better-known attractions of each region in Indonesia. The Lonely Planet or Rough Guide are much better for a more in-depth coverage of the entire country, or go for the Periplus ones for more detail on particular regions.
