 The other day, two advance copies of Marcus Mietzner’s Money, Power and Ideology: Political Parties in Post-Authoritarian Indonesia arrived at NIAS Press. Our colleague Vera Altmeyer – whose PhD thesis focuses on the core arena of political power contestation in Indonesia: election campaigns – has been awaiting the appearance of this book for ages and snapped up a copy with glee.

According to Vera, a lot of other scholars are keen to read the book as well. This is not surprising if one is to believe Professor R. William Liddle of Ohio State University. ‘This is a wonderful book’, he says, ‘the best to appear on Indonesian party politics, indeed on Indonesian politics in general, since democratization more than a decade ago.’

With the Indonesian presidential election looming, the book is also highly topical. Well, we have no objection to selling lots of copies as a result.
