One of history's biggest massacres ever took place in Indonesia in 1965/66, when around half a million people were killed in the suppression of the Communist Party of Indonesia (PKI). The Indonesian Killings is not a formal history of that event, but a fairly eclectic collection of writings on to the subject, both academic analyses and first hand accounts. Since no systematic account of the killings has been written, however, this volume is a good starting point for anyone interested in one of the most important events in modern Indonesian history.
