By George Mcturnan Kahin

Cornell University Press (for the International Secretariat, Institute of Pacific Relations, and Southeast Asia Program, Cornell University), 1952, 490 pp.

A detailed and extensively-documented study of the Indonesian drive to independence after the Second World War. The author, who spent a year in the islands in 1948-1949, is extremely critical of the whole Dutch rôle but hopeful for the prospects of the new republic.
