In the last years of the twentieth century, foreign correspondent Richard Lloyd Parry found himself in the vast island nation of Indonesia, one of the most alluring, mysterious, and violent countries in the world. For thirty-two years, it had been paralyzed by the grip of the dictator and mystic General Suharto, but now the age of Suharto was coming to an end. Would freedom prevail, or was the time of madness predicted centuries before now at hand? A book of hair-raising immediacy and a riveting account of a voyage into the abyss, "In the Time of Madness" is an accomplishment in the great tradition of Conrad, Orwell, and Ryszard Kapuscinski."show more

Review quote

"In this extraordinary book, Lloyd Parry's language, humanity, and courage are inseperable, a single strong wind of decency blowing hard against the mayhem on Earth, but given the way things are these days, and the world's fliration with darkness, one can't help but read in the Time of Madness as a forecast of worse to come." -- Bob Shacochisshow more
