General Suharto is synonymous with modern Indonesia. He became President amidst extreme social upheaval and mass violence in 1966 - a position he retained until 1998. This book provides enormous insights into a man who exerted extraordinary power and influence, who presented himself as an infallible father of the nation, yet who remained mysterious. He sought to transform Indonesia into a strong, united and economically prosperous nation-state. After half a century of influence, however, he is remembered as much for human rights abuses and corruption on an incomparable scale.
