This book is about a systematic invested empiric analysis of Suharto’s dominion strategy in Indonesia during the years 1965-1998, in particular, the collapse of the authoritarian political order established by him. This «New Order» was subject to both internal and external structural change, which was ignored by the dominion order, and also, despite appropriate adaptation, was not to be dealt with.
