This is essential reading for students of modern Indonesian history, and for anyone interested in political violence, the role of the military in politics, and U.S. foreign policy. - Geoffrey Robinson, UCLA ""Roosa takes readers into that fascinating hyper-heated political atmosphere of Sukarno's Indonesia.... His account shows how the bloody denouement of October 1965 was the sum of these tensions - rival military factions, maneuvers by special units within the Communist Party, and the efforts of foreign intelligence agencies to manipulate these divisions. Lucid, thoughtful, and engaging, this is a brilliant, strikingly original analysis."" - Alfred W. McCoy, author of A Question of Torture: CIA Interrogation from the Cold War to the War on Terror, series editor
