Assigned to head the development by Antoine Brodzski the promoter and a Scandinavian multinational, he is plunged into a conflict of financial and political interests in Suharto’s Indonesia, where dollars are more important than the obliteration of huge swaths of Borneo’s primary forests, its unique wildlife and the destruction to be wreaked on the habitat of the indigenous peoples.< Less

More > inter pares in the ASEAN. The group’s initiatives reflected Indonesia’s foreign policy interests considerably, encouraging Jakarta to develop a regional claim for leadership.

In 1957-58, the CIA,instructed by Eisenhower and JF Dulles performed the till-then largest covert military action in US history, in support of a regional rebellion against the neutralist Indonesian... 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

This book explores aspects of human cognitive capacities and how they structure our knowledge of reality. It then discusses the political and economic structure of the West to see whether particular... More > theories of human nature are reflected in and promoted by the dominant institutions. It reviews the human rights record of Britain based on information from journals and scholarly histories, focusing primarily on the post-war world. There are many books which deal with the mind, but this book draws together some of the most significant and illuminating advances in recent cognitive science. There are also many books which deal with education, economics, political philosophy and British foreign policy, but much of Whitehall’s support of brutal regimes from Suharto in Indonesia to Obasanjo in Nigeria are unknown to the public and remain unresearched by journalists and academics. In short, there are many books which deal with ‘the mind’ and ‘freedom,’ but not many which deal with the ‘and.’< Less
