Overview

Media, Culture, and Politics in Indonesia is about the institutions and policies

that determine what Indonesians write, read, watch, and hear. It covers the

print media, broadcast radio and television, computers and the internet,

videos, films and music. This book argues that the texts of the media can be

understood in two broad ways:

. as records of a "national" culture and political hegemony constructed by

Suharto's New Order

. as contradictory, dissident, political and cultural aspirations that reflect

the anxieties and preoccupations of Indonesian citizens.

Media, Culture, and Politics, now brought back to life as a member of

Equinox Publishing's Classic Indonesia series, explains what has escaped

state control, not only by self-conscious resistance, but also because of the

ownership patterns, technologies, and modes of consumption of media texts

and institutions. The role of the media in the downfall of Suharto is examined

and the legacy of his New Order is analyzed.

This dynamic and innovative text is suitable for all students of Indonesian

languages and culture, Asian studies, Southeast Asian studies, cultural studies,

media studies, and contemporary politics.
