"Here is the complex but completely fascinating history of Indonesia made simple and easy to read.  Like a darlang manipulating puppets in a wayang - the traditional shadow play of the Indonesian people - Maslyn Williams presents a procession of god-kings and villains, heroic princes and princesses, pirates and prime ministers, magicians and bandits, against the background of waves of invaders, first from India, China and Arabia, and eventually from the West.  This is the story of the great archipelago, often described as "a beautiful necklet of emeralds lying across the equator".
