"Although people of Chinese descent constitute less than 3% of the population in Indonesia, Chinese Indonesians dominate private business and play a vital role in the country’s economy.

In this first book length study of anti-Chinese hostility in contemporary Indonesia, Jemma Purdey undertakes a close analysis of the main incidents of violence during the transitional period between 1996–1999, which led to an unprecedented process of national reflection."
