Richard Borsuk: The Business Pillar of Suharto’s Indonesia, is a detailed review of Indonesia’s business environment, economy and politics during Suharto’s 30-year rule.

Every sentence is a polished gem, bringing events and characters to life as we retrace Liem’s footsteps from a poor boy in a Chinese village to founder of the largest business empire in Indonesia.
