Only slight wear to book, light chipping top edge of DJ ; Text completely in Japanese script, DJ in Mylar, bound in satin bookmark ; B&W Photographs; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 335 pages; "Akio depicts Indonesian politics through the family life of Megawati. Writing journalistically, she strongly emphasizes Megawati’s gender roles—as daughter, mother, and wife—especially her “destiny” as the daughter of Indonesia’s first president. Arguably, she draws the contrast between Megawati and Soeharto too simply as “good” and “bad.” However, she has gathered wide-ranging source material, including interviews with everyone from taxi drivers to Megawati herself in the period before she became president. The material from her several interviews with Megawati are of special value in understanding this often silent Indonesian leader."
