- Program Description
“Among the nations that emerged from the crucible of World War II was Indonesia, a congeries of three thousand islands that, after the war, had a population of more than ninety million. Indonesia, led by the emancipator Sukarno, professed nonalignment in the East m- West Cold War, but its Communist Party, encouraged by Soviet Russia and Red China, kept moving it into the Communist camp. But he moved too far too fast: he was overthrown in 1966 in an anti-Communist coup, under the leadership of Suharto, and the revolution brought the sixth largest nation in world back into the western camp.”
