  • Description: This study examines President Suharto's effort to purge Indonesia of communism, ensure the Left could never again pose a threat to the regnant order in Indonesia, and promote anticommunist stability across the wider Southeast Asian region. It emphasizes the role of international capital flows in the unfolding of the global Cold War, showing how Suharto mobilized international aid and investment to construct his New Order dictatorship.
