Current Events: The Barren Terrain of Indonesian Politics

This week we talk with Professor Max Lane about Indonesian politics and economics. We discuss the 1965 "Red Slaughter" in which one million people were killed, the legacy of the Suharto regime, and the role the U.S, Europe and Australia continue to play in keeping Indonesians poor.  Max Lane is a Visiting Senior Fellow at the Institute for Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore. In addition to numerous academic publications, he has actively supported political change in Indonesia since the mid-1970s, and has translated work by the acclaimed Indonesian novelist Pramoedya Ananta Toer. He is the author of many books including Unfinished Nation (Verso).
