Abstract:

A number of experts believe that the Communist Party of Indonesia PKI has been emasculated or domesticated under the authoritarian regime established in 1959 by President Sukarno with the assistance of an erstwhile anti-Communist officer corps. This analysis, which comes to the opposite conclusion, is based on the authors accumulated experience of Indonesian affairs gained in part during eight field trips since 1955 and on a careful examination of publicly available Indonesian sources. No attempt is made here to suggest policies for the United States which would reverse the current trend of Indonesian political developments or to cope otherwise with their possible consequences.
