The Indonesian Military after the New Order

This study identifies the factors behind the Indonesian military's decision to reposition its dominant role in socio-political affairs after the fall of Suharto. It covers the contestation between the military and the new civilian regime under President Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur) over its altered role, and the military's part behind his fall. Finally, the military's future role under President Megawati is assessed, together with the possibilities of it resuming power.
The author, as a former ghostwriter at the Indonesian Ministries of Home Affairs and Defence, has been privy to the internal dynamics of the military and has personally interviewed untouchable figures such as former President Suharto. An up-to-date, well-informed study providing a useful contribution to the literature, particularly with regard to the younger generation of the military.
