Abstract

Politics and the Press in Indonesia explores the evolving political culture in Indonesia, by discussing the country's dominant political philosophies, then showing how these philosophies affect the working lives of ordinary Indonesian citizens. It focuses in particular on the working lives of news journalists, a group that occupies a strategic social and political position. Angela Romano discusses the philosphies of 'Pancasila', the official national ideology, as well as paternalism, integrationism and corporatism. Romano also explores the 32-year period of New Order government and the rapid changes that followed President Suharto's resignation in 1998, concentrating on how the day-to-day workings of the news media are affected by paternalism, corporatism, corruption, and the evolution of the prevaling political culture.
