AS FAR AS I AM AWARE (BEING MERELY JOURNALIST WITH ENVIRONMENT AND TOURISM MY NEWS DOMAIN) this must be an invaluable book for Indonesian historians specializing in 20th century indonesian history , more superspecailizing in PRRI/PERMESTA period: -very well document, objectively written without any reservation given to the US side being tghe sponsor of the rebellion against Sukarno's government.
