Reformasi: The Struggle for Power in Post-Soeharto Indonesia, is a non-fiction narrative that charts the course of Indonesian politics since 1996. Building on the author’s experience as an independent political analyst, and referenced with over 1,000 notes, Reformasi provides a chronological account of the financial collapse, the downfall of Soeharto and the circumstances surrounding much of the period’s politically related violence. The account explores the consequences of cronyism, weak electoral accountability, ‘Ruler’s Law’ (versus rule-of-law), and the military’s role in politics and business. Reformasi is published by Australia’s Allen & Unwin (2002).
