Surabaya, 1945–2010, presents the recent history of one of Indonesia’s great port cities as viewed from a crowded low-income neighborhood (kampung) called Dinoyo. By following the lives of Dinoyo residents over three generations, it provides a new perspective on landmark moments in the country’s modern history, including the war for independence, the destruction of the Communist Party,anticrime campaigns, neigh­borhood improvement pro­jects, the fall of the New Order, and the rise of democracy, as well as more recent government campaigns to fight terrorism and promote urban renewal.
