About this title


Governing Indonesia is about the birth of indonesian democracy, and the recent political history of Indonesia from 1950 to the present day.

The essential question Governing Indonesia asks is: do countries of the third world stand a better chance of attaining a real democracy by initially limiting individual democratic rights in favour of economic progress, managed ethnic diversity and the general good?

Raj Vasil controversially argues that the most effective way of ensuring the success of democracy in the newly-industrialised nations such as Indonesia is to introduce democracy gradually. Paradoxically, the increasingly wherewithal of Indonesian citizens will ultimately make it possible for them to act more effectively as citizens of a true democracy than by introducing all the elements of a typical western style liberal democracy at the start.
· The only book that looks at modern indonesian politics from the perspective of the modern political development in the region as a whole
· The author's controversial argument about the need and role of `limited' democracy in modern developing countries
