Rate this book
Clear rating
Part philosophical, part theological, and in most part, reminiscent of Eastern teachings like e.g. Taoism and Zen. A little opaque at times, but once you get his drift, things become pretty clear.

A History of Modern Indonesia by Adrian Vickers
Rate this book
Clear rating
Solid, if rather short, history of the country from late 19th century up to general election in 2004. Plenty of old posters, stamps, and strip comics through the ages showing contemporary zeitgeist.
