Adam Schwarz's highly acclaimed and best-selling "A Nation in Waiting" brings the story of contemporary Indonesia right up to date, covering the collapse of the economy, the fall of Suharto, the series of brief subsequent presidencies and the challenges facing the nation in the run-up to the 2004 elections. "A Naton in Waiting" lifts the veil on the Indonesia of the 1980s and 1990s and spans a wide variety of contemporary issues to offer a detailed and thought-provoking glimpse of one of the world's least-understood nations. Using a wealth of first-hand information, Adam Schwarz gives life to the heated debates on economic policy, corruption and the controversial role of ethnic Chinese Indonesians. He analyzes the political demands of Indonesia's Muslim community, the mishandled incorporation of East Timor, the debate on human rights and the dilemma facing the Indonesian military as it struggles to redefine its role.
