Death and Survival in the Anti-Communist Violence in East Java, Indonesia
Vanessa Hearman
2018 288pp
The wave of anti-communist violence that swept across Indonesia in 1965-66 produced a particularly high death toll in East Java.

In this book, Vannessa Hearman examines the human cost and the community impact of the violence on people from different sides of the political divide.
