"At long last, leading experts on Indonesian politics are arguing with each other again. At the heart of this new debate is the importance of material inequality and extreme wealth concentration in shaping the character of Indonesian politics. Beyond Oligarchy collects a series of first-rate essays that both express the power and explore the limitations of analyses that portray the fusion of wealth and domination as the defining deficiency of Indonesian democracy. In so doing, volume coeditors Michele Ford and Thomas Pepinsky boldly break down conventional barriers to scholarly conversations about the most pressing issues and developments in Indonesian political life. Beyond Oligarchy definitively sets a new tone-and arguably sets a new standard-for the study of Indonesian politics after Suharto."-Dan Slater, University of Chicago, author of Ordering Power: Contentious Politics and Authoritarian Leviathans in Southeast Asia "A brilliant and very useful collection in which advocates of the major theses in Australian and American scholarship on Indonesian democratization both present and reflect on their focus on oligarchic versus liberal and plural tendencies. A must-read also in wider circles and for those who try alternative perspectives."-Olle Tornquist, University of Oslo
