Military politics, Islam, and the state in Indonesia : from turbulent transition to democratic consolidation by Marcus Mietzner( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an account of the military's struggle to adapt to the fresh democratic system after the downfall of Suharto's authoritarian regime in 1998. This book emphasizes the importance of conflicts among civilians in determining the extent of military involvement in political affairs
Money, power, and ideology : political parties in post-authoritarian Indonesia by Marcus Mietzner( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are political parties the weak link in Indonesia's young democracy? More pointedly, do they form a giant cartel to suck patronage resources from the state? Indonesian commentators almost invariably brand the country's parties as corrupt, self-absorbed, and elitist, while most scholars argue that they are poorly institutionalized. This book tests such assertions by providing unprecedented and fine-grained analysis of the inner workings of Indonesian parties, and by comparing them to their equivalents in other new democracies around the world. Contrary to much of the existing scholarship, the book finds that Indonesian parties are reasonably well institutionalized if compared to their counterparts in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and other parts of Asia. There is also little evidence that Indonesian parties are cartelized. But there is a significant flaw in the design of Indonesia's party system: while most new democracies provide state funding to parties, Indonesia has opted to deny central party boards any meaningful subsidies. As a result, Indonesian parties face severe difficulties in financing their operations, leading them to launch predatory attacks on state resources and making them vulnerable to manipulation by oligarchic interests
Problems of democratisation in Indonesia : elections, institutions, and society by Edward Aspinall( )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the 2009 national elections as an entry point, the contributors focus on how key democratic institutions and procedures have functioned since 1998. Papers discuss the conduct of elections, the roles of parliament, parties and civil society, the engagement of women in politics and regional political dynamics

The Yudhoyono presidency : Indonesia's decade of stability and stagnation by Edward Aspinall( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The presidency of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (2004–14) was a watershed in Indonesia's modern democratic history. Yudhoyono was not only the first Indonesian president to be directly elected, but also the first to be democratically re-elected. Coming to office after years of turbulent transition, he presided over a decade of remarkable political stability and steady economic growth. But other aspects of his rule have been the subject of controversy. While supporters view his presidency as a period of democratic consolidation and success, critics view it as a decade of stagnation and missed opportunities. This book is the first comprehensive attempt to evaluate both the achievements and the shortcomings of the Yudhoyono presidency. With contributions from leading experts on Indonesia's politics, economy and society, it assesses the Yudhoyono record in fields ranging from economic development and human rights, to foreign policy, the environment and the security sector

Reinventing Asian populism : Jokowi's rise, democracy, and political contestation in Indonesia by Marcus Mietzner( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Around the globe, populists have used the decline of established political parties and widespread societal fears of globalization to launch increasingly successful electoral campaigns. Indonesia is no exception. In the 2014 presidential elections, two populists even competed against each other--albeit with vastly different concepts of populism. Prabowo Subianto, the wealthy former son-in-law of ex-autocrat Suharto, offered a classic populist paradigm based on anti-foreign rhetoric, condemnation of the status quo, appeal to the poor, and neo-authoritarian reform plans. By contrast, his opponent, the down-to-earth former carpenter and Jakarta governor, Joko Widodo ("Jokowi"), advanced a new form of technocratic populism that was inclusive, nonconfrontational, and primarily focused on improving the quality of public service delivery. This study explores the dynamics of the electoral contest between Prabowo and Jokowi, and analyzes what they tell us about the conditions under which populist campaigns are launched and succeed or fail. It shows that Prabowo's campaign was ultimately defeated because Indonesia's post-Suharto democracy was not in a state of acute, life-threatening crisis. However, the issue also illuminates Jokowi's struggle to establish his populist rule after his inauguration as president, with oligarchic forces and other members of the old elite forcefully trying to intrude into his new government
