An overview of the history of Indonesia's newspapers since 1745 introduces the account of the course of both the government's anti-press freedom polices of the late 1960s and afterwards, and trends towards economic and other liberalisations in the 1980s. Details are given of many otherwise obscured incidents and events and light is shed on political and other roles played by national and regional news publications in this period of economic development and confused politico/social tensions and conflict. With reading suggestions and index.
