Book Description

A massive biography of the Indonesian nationalist leader and Prime Minister of the Indonesian Republic, Sutan Sjahrir, this work is both a study of an individual and a study of the social conditions that shaped him. It moves from his birth in the Minangkabau region through his childhood, education, and early influences, and is most detailed, of course, during the periods of Sjahrir's imprisonment and exile by the Dutch, the Japanese occupation, and the Indonesian Revolution. The author has conducted extensive research and interviews with those who knew Sjahrir personally, politically, and by reputation.
