Since the first edition, Indonesia has undergone massive political and legal change as part of its post-Soeharto reform process and its dramatic transition to democracy. This work contains 25 new chapters and the 4 surviving chapters have all been revised, where necessary. Indonesia: Law and Society now covers a broad range of legal fields and includes both historical and very up-to-date analyses and views on Indonesian legal issues. It includes work by leading scholars from a wide range of countries. There is still no comparable, English language text in existence.

...It is a complex and sensitive relationship borne of the differences in history, demographics, political, legal and cultural background. This book is useful as a bridge for academics, government officials and students of both countries. It is considered to be the most authoritative modern text in the English language on Indonesian law and society today. - Australian International Law Journal, p304
