nfinished Nation=E2=80=9D traces the evolution of Indonesian political stru=
ggle from its anti-colonial stirrings in the early twentieth century to a l=
engthy, and eventually victorious, struggle against the dictatorship of Pre=
sident Suharto. In clarifying the often-misunderstood political changes tha=
t took place in Indonesia at the end of the twentieth century, Max Lane tra=
ces how small resistance groups inside Indonesia directed massive political=
 transformation. He shows how the real heroes were the Indonesian workers a=
nd peasants, whose sustained mass direct action was the determining force i=
n toppling one of the most enduring dictatorships of modern times. Taking i=
n the role of political Islam, and with considerations on the future of thi=
s fragmented country, =E2=80=9CUnfinished Nation=E2=80=9D is an illuminatin=
