For years, many have anticipated Indonesia’s rise as an economic power and an important player in international affairs. Keating (2010) used the term ‘the Indonesian tiger’ and Roubini (2011) enthusiastically pronounced ‘goodbye China, hello Indonesia’ (in Reid, 2012). Amid this optimism, Anthony Reid’s edited book, referring to ‘Indonesia’s rise’ in quotes, presents a more balanced, and often contrasting, portrayal of the country’s current state by engaging the perspectives of various experts.
