This post is not going to be about Japanese activity during World War II, although you may find some references to that period. Rather, this is (for the most part) a wide-ranging collection of news reports and travelogues, some well-illustrated; and a variety of reviews. I think anyone interested in Batam, Indonesia, will likely find something here of interest.

This book explores how local elections have affected Indonesia’s democracy and political dynamics.

Southeast Asia contains some of the world’s busiest shipping waters, particularly the Indonesian archipelago, the Straits of Malacca and the South China Sea. The natural geography and human ecology of maritime Southeast Asia makes the area particularly apt for piracy, which has a long history in the region. In several instances during the last 250 years, pirates have disrupted peaceful trade and communications. Pirates in Paradise traces the shifting character and development of Southeast Asian piracy from the eighteenth century to the present day, demonstrating how political, economic, social, and technological factors have contributed to change–but have by no means exterminated–the phenomenon.
Batam also seemed worth a visit because its back story is interesting: in the late 1980s, Singapore teamed with Indonesia and Malaysia to create a “growth tri …

Since the fall of long-reigning President Soeharto, in 1998, Indonesia has been in an era of transition, away from an authoritarian regime, and on a quest for democracy. This quest started with decentralization laws implemented in 2001, which gave greater autonomy to the regions, and continued with the direct elections for the national and local legislatures and the President in 2004. The latest development in this democratization process is the implementation of a system for the direct election of regional leaders, which began in 2005; the first round of elections across the nation for all governors, mayors and district heads was completed in 2008. Authors of the chapters in this volume, the result of a workshop in Singapore in 2006, present data from across the archipelago for these first direct elections for local leaders and give their assessment as to how far these elections have contributed to a deepening democracy.
