SOEHARTO: The Life and Legacy of Indonesia's Second President is the biography of a man who rose from a humble farming background to become one of the most important political figures in Asia. This insightful narrative traces his life from his birth in 1921, through his long tenure as president to his present life, one that is far divorced from his former days of glory. It also explores the controversy surrounding the charitable organizations (or Yayasan) which were established during his time in power and their links to the Indonesian conglomerates and his family. As president, he was often depicted as a sober-minded and evasive person, making him an enigma to many. This book offers a rare glimpse of his warmth and sensitivity towards those whom he trusts and how his faith in himself and his country remained unshaken through his meteoric rise and dramatic fall from power.
