Historical Dictionary of Indonesia

Scarecrow Press, 2004 - 583 sivua
"Indonesia is Asia's third largest country in both population and area, a sprawling tropical archipelago of 180 million people, representing hundreds of ethnic groups, with a complex, turbulent history. One of Asia's newly industrializing countries, it is already a major economic powerhouse. In more than 800 clear and succinct entries, Historical Dictionary of Indonesia covers people, places, and organizations, as well as economics, culture, and politics from Indonesia's ancient history until the recent past. With a comprehensive bibliography, maps, chronology, list of abbreviations, and appendix of election results and major office-holders, this second edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to include the past fifteen years."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
