Governing Indonesia

  • 1st Edition
  • Raj Vasil
  • English
Governing Indonesia is about the birth of indonesian democracy, and the recent political history of Indonesia from 1950 to the present day.The essential question Governing Indonesia asks is: do countries of the third world stand a better chance of attaining a real democracy by initially limiting individual democratic rights in favour of economic progress, managed ethnic diversity and the general good? Raj Vasil controversially argues that the most effective way of ensuring the success of democracy in the newly-industrialised nations such as Indonesia is to introduce democracy gradually. Paradoxically, the increasingly wherewithal of Indonesian citizens will ultimately make it possible for them to act more effectively as citizens of a true democracy than by introducing all the elements of a typical western style liberal democracy at the start.

Troubled Tiger

  • 1st Edition
  • Mark Clifford
  • English
Troubled Tiger mixes an anecdotal, readable account of the dramatic rise of the Koren economy with an in-depth analysis of the economic choices Korea faced and made under former presidents and ex-generals Park Chung Hee, Chun Doo Hwan, and Roh Tae woo and of the tremendous costs of that growth. It also details the huge changes that have been roiling the Korean economy with the emergence of a more democratic government under President Kim Young Sam.¦During my time in Seoul, I found Mark Clifford to be one of the most astute observers of the scene in Korea. His book Troubled Tiger weaves together in a compelling way the complex skein of economic, political amd military forces that have combined to produce today's Korea. The importance of Korea, to Asia and to the United States, is not well understood. Clifford's book is thus important, as well as interesting reading. I strongly recommend it to all with an interest in Korea and the Northeast Asian region.¦Donald P Gregg, US Ambassador to Seoul, 1989-1993
