Synopsis

The disintegration of Indonesia's New Order regime in 1998 and the fall of





Soeharto put an end to the crude forms of centralised authoritarianism and





economic protectionism that allowed large Chinese conglomerates to dom-





inate Indonesia's private sector. Contrary to all expectations, most of the





major capitalist groups, though damaged considerably by the Asian Crisis,





managed to cope with the ensuing monumental political and economic





changes, and now thrive again albeit within a new democratic environment.





In this book Christian Chua assesses the state of capital before, during,





and after the financial and political crisis of 1997/1998 and analyses the





changing relationships between business and the state in Indonesia. Using a





distinct perspective that combines cultural and structural approaches on





Chinese big business with exclusive material derived from interviews with





some of IndonesiaaEURO (TM)s major business leaders, Chua identifies the strategies





employed by tycoons to adapt their corporations to the post-authoritarian





regime and provides a unique insight into how state-business relationships





in Indonesia have evolved since the crisis.





Chinese Big Business in Indonesia is the first major analysis of capital in





Indonesia since the fall of Soeharto, and will be of interest to graduate





students and scholars of political economy, political sociology, economics





and business administration as well as to practitioners having to do with





Southeast Asian business and politics.
