In this study of Indonesia under the Suharto regime, the authors describe and explain the violent means the regime has consistently resorted to in order to maintain and legitimize its position. The significance of this book lies in the detailed account which illuminates the complex ways in which such regimes combine terror, a perverted legal system, and propaganda to force entire populations into submission.
