Friend's Refresher. "Indonesian Destinies" by Theodore Friend [review]
With its anecdotes, accessible writing and the depth and richness of the author’s knowledge and experience, "Indonesian Destinies" is an excellent book with which to broach the subject of Indonesia. For me, having explored the competing, contrasting and sometimes confrontational body of material that is available, returning to Friend’s book was a welcome and perhaps necessary refresher. Anyone interested in Indonesia would benefit from reading it.
