The Story of the Nation

and its Relationship With Australia


by Adrian Osterley


he vast archipelago that makes up Indonesia is a combination of many cultures, lifestyles, ethnic mixes and religions. Islands such as Java, Sumatra and Bali have witnessed the rise and fall of many kingdoms as well as European colonial rule.


This is the story of Indonesia from ancient times, through the era of kingdoms, into the centuries of Dutch colonial control and the fight for independence to create the republic we know today. It is a story of monumental egos, corruption, militarism, and a struggle to create a cohesive nationalism.


This is Indonesia: The Story of the Nation.
