"Despite its appalling magnitude, the 1965–1968 mass killings in Indonesia have been at the fringes of international historical imagination.

(…) The volume under review here is a very notable contribution to our understanding of this complex set of events and their lasting repercussions.

(…) a valuable compilation of articles that significantly enhances our understanding of this tragic historical episode.

(…) The editors, Kammen and McGregor, have done an admirable job in introducing the volume. Providing a succinct overview of the event and a strategically selective yet penetrating review of the problems and approaches in the existing corpus of relevant studies, they clarify the scholarly terrain within which each chapter in the volume may be located.

(…) This volume has contributed more than a fair share to the jigsaw-solving efforts, and in so doing continues the momentum unleashed since the demise of the New Order regime."
