Indonesia: A Nation of Islands

Indonesia: A Nation of Islands

by Judy Jacobs

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Cultural variety is the emphasis in this series addition. With accuracy, clarity, and simplicity, Jacobs gives a geographic overview of the major Indonesian islands; highlights the customs of particular ethnic groups; briefly reviews Indonesian history from Java Man to Suharto; and details certain sports, foods, family life and routines, and cultural arts. The book offers both a national and global perspective on the cultural uniqueness of Indonesia and the economic, political, and educational challenges facing this island country. The readability, choice of topics, and enthusiastic presentation will appeal to middle-grade readers. The ``Fast Facts'' section, addresses of Indonesian embassies and consulates in the United States and Canada, and many color photographs are helpful research aids. A welcome replacement for outdated books on Indonesia and a quality companion to the autobiographical collection, Chris Fairclough's We Live in Indonesia (Bookwright, 1986). --Gerry Larson, Chewning Junior High School, Durham, NC
