Now the worlds largest Muslim nation, Indonesia remains extraordinarily heterogeneous due to the waves of immigrationBuddhist, Hindu, Arab, and Europeanthat have defined the regions history.Fifty years after the collapse of Dutch colonial rule, Indonesia is a nation in the midst of dramatic upheaval. In this broad survey, Jean Gelman Taylor explores the connections between the nations many communities, and the differences that propel contemporary breakaway movements.Drawing on a broad range of sources, including art, archaeology, and literature, Taylor provides a historical overview from the prehistoric period to the present day. The text is enlivened by brief capsule histories on topics ranging from pepper to Maharajas to smallpox.This ambitious bookthe first new history of Indonesia written in over twenty yearswill be essential reading for anyone interested in the history of Southeast Asia and the future stability of the region.
