In the 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review, military planners speak at great length about the importance of rebalancing our armed forces. As a result of the Budget Control Act of 2011, our U.S. Armed... More > Forces have absorbed significant budget cuts, which are projected to continue into 2016. Not surprisingly, a major theme of the Quadrennial Defense Review is the necessity of making tough choices in a period of fiscal austerity.1 As Dr. Manjikian’s analysis points out, however, many of the themes raised by policymakers, military analysts and the general public in relation to this new politics of austerity are not actually new.

More > government. The rebellion failed. In the following years Indonesia turned more authoritarian. In US eyes, the country’s drift seemed to be towards becoming the world’s third major communist country, threatening to become the "greatest loss since the fall of China." However, in 1965 an allegedly communist coup attempt led to a military counter-coup led by Suharto. After a massacre of roughly half a million claimed communists, Suharto took power. Indonesia re-aligned itself with the US and recreated its links with the west. Regional power shifted in US favor, and the vital maritime passageways were secured for both military and commercial purposes. Likewise, Indonesian natural and military resources were safely out of communist hands. This dissertation traces US policy in the vital years 1961-1965< Less
