The Return to Constitutional Democracy in Indonesia
Edited by: Thomas Reuter
The sudden demise of the Suharto administration in 1998 ended 32 years of political oppression in Indonesia and initiated a period of significant political liberalization, restructuring, and reform. Many difficulties remain for the Indonesian government and people to resolve. This volume brings together a group of eminent international experts to reflect on the positive outcomes of the democratic reform process. The contributors focus specifically on the different approaches and contributions of Indonesia's four post-Suharto presidents. Accounts of these four presidencies are supplemented with analyses of the changing role of political parties and of the on-going struggle with terrorism that has more or less coincided with Indonesia's reform period.
