Tan Malaka's Naar de 'Republiek Indonesia'

A Translation and Commentary

Authored by Geoffrey C Gunn
Edition: 1

"TAN MALAKA'S NAAR DE 'REPUBLIEK INDONESIA' - A Trans- lation and Commentary" is a reprint of a book of the same title that was published in Japan in 1996.

This book is to 're- patriate' a work from China-Japan to Indonesia. The objective is for younger generation of Indonesians who had lived under the dictatorship of Suharto to be able to read history of their own nation objectively.

We hope that this book will restore the figure of Tan Malaka to his deserved position at the center of debates on modern Indonesian history.
