»The book represents the richest analysis of Indonesia's current transition processes available on the market. It offers insights into a multitude of challenges for the consolidation of democracy. Its two main strenghts are the combination of German and Indonesian perspectives and the strong theoretical foundation. It is thus a book that is most recommendable for people interested in Indonesia as well as in the theoretical analysis of democratic transition and consolidation.«
