President Suharto had been in power for more than thirty years before his downfall in 1998. The regime that swept to power, in the wake of the military putsch of 1965 brought stability and economic prosperity to Indonesia for many years. However, financial weakness and corruption were exposed as the Asian economic crisis developed and Suharto’s position became untenable.
This newly revised third edition provides an informed and balanced
analysis of Suharto’s New Order from its inception to the emergence of B.J.Habibie as President. The author reassesses the New Order’s origins and its military roots, and evaluates the considerable economic changes that have taken place since the 1960s. He examines Suharto’s politics and, in a new chapter, the reasons behind the crisis and Suharto’s fall.
Suharto may have gone, but the New Order regime is still in place. Michael Vatikiotis provides the reader with a highly accessible yet authoritative account of Indonesia’s recent political history. His book is an invaluable guide to understanding the background to change and the crisis itself.
