About this title


Surveying the post-independence period to show how pluralism fared under the successive regimes of Sukamo, Suharto, Habibie, Abdurrahman Wahid, and how it fares under Megawati Sukamoputri today, this study concludes that most of the problems experienced by these regimes were caused by a failure to uphold the pluralistic nature that Indonesian society requires for stability.
