Synopsis

Indonesia by Lynda Cohen Cassanos

Indonesia is an archipelago that includes more than 17,000 islands and stretches across three time zones. It is home to the world's largest Muslim population-more than 200 million Indonesians follow the faith. In 1998 Indonesians replaced the rule of a dictator with democracy, and since then the country has held free and open elections for president as well as for members of a national assembly. However, Indonesia is not without problems, particularly poverty and corruption. There is an armed separatist movement in Aceh, and Islamist terrorist groups like al-Qaeda have targeted Westerners on Bali. This book examines the economic and political issues facing Indonesia today. It provides up-to-date information about the country's geography and climate, history, society, important cities and communities, and relations with other countries
