CELEBRATIONS AROUND THE WORLD
Two major events yesterday -- one here in the U.S. and one half way around the world in Indonesia.
In South Carolina, Senator Barack Obama won the primary with 55% of the votes.
In Jakarta, former Dictator Soeharto died. Two books that I recommend to learn more about contemporary Indonesian politics are: The End of Sukarno: A Coup That Misfired, a Purge That Ran Wild by John Hughes and Reformasi: The Struggle for Power in Post-Soeharto Indonesia by Kevin O'Rourke
Anti-Soeharto Protests in 1998
