A book about Konfrontasi. From Chapter 1:

“This is not a day-by-day record or history of Indonesia’s confrontation of Malaysia. It is too early for such a book to be written. It is an attempt to provide some of the background, discover some of the roots of confrontation, and take a look at some of the people and some of the conditions that have made it possible. In particular it is concerned with those aspects of this dispute between two Asian countries which may have a relevance elsewhere.”
