A Fragile Nation: The Indonesian Crisis By Khoon Choy Lee, Lee Khoon Choy
Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company | ISBN: 9810240031 | edition 1999 | PDF | 436 pages | 4 mb
In May 1998, President Suharto stepped down as President of Indonesia. With his fall, the third largest country in Asia has plunged into anarchy and political, economic and social strife. Racial and religious clashes, culminating in riots, burning and chaos, have become the order of the day. Fissures in the social fabric are widening and there is real danger that this multi-racial, multi-religious and multi-cultural country may disintegrate, just like Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union. In this book, the author portrays the Indonesian people, their history and their cultural traditions. He provides insightful analyses and perspectives of the political collapse of Suharto and describes the danger facing the country. Describing the diversity in the history, traditions, customs and cultures of the various ethnic groups, he provides an understanding of Indonesia. The author aims to bring outsider's clarity of perception and the journalist-diplomat's experience of tradition and history to the problems and to speak with authority and sensitivity about the challenges facing a vast, heterogeneous country that comprises 336 ethnic groups speaking 250 dialects.
