A teeming metropolis of ten million, Jakarta remains one of the least understood cities in Asia. Here for the first time, the veil (and sometimes the sarong!) is lifted, exposing the city’s idiosyncrasies with irreverent prose and striking photography. From love hotels to ladyboys, sweatshops to soap opera celebrities, pigeon racing to piracy, Jakarta Inside Out leads readers on an illuminating pop culture exploration of Indonesia’s frenzied capital. This book is an essential tool for residents, visitors or anyone wishing to understand what makes Jakarta tick.

The Far Eastern Economic Review writes "Ziv expertly weaves city life with the tumultuous politics of the past five years. From the student demonstrations that helped bring down Suharto, to the hardships of ordinary city folk brought on by the financial crisis of 1997, there's no escaping the impact of politics in modern Jakarta."About the Author:
Daniel Ziv came to Jakarta four years ago to conduct doctoral research on Indonesian social politics, but abandoned this noble pursuit to start up djakarta! – The City Life Magazine, where until recently he was Editor-in-Chief. He has since presented travel segments on Jakarta for Discovery Channel, and to further cheapen his image, recently recorded the sappy love theme for the hot new Indonesian TV soap opera, Strawberry. Daniel has worked, studied or idled in Vancouver, New Delhi, London, Moscow, Jerusalem and Bangkok, and by paying off the right people managed to earn an MA in Southeast Asian Studies from London’s School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS). He currently works in the murky field of development consultancy.
