EVERY DAY, the Jakarta Globe newspaper publishes a column with a deceptively simple premise - we interview someone living in Jakarta and ask: what's your life here like? As we show in this selection of columns, the answers are far from simple. But then, so are the lives of the people you will meet in these pages. Inside you will find the street robber and gangster just trying to feed his family, the star student who happens to be a beauty queen and lawyer in her spare time, the 105-year-old masseur who has outlasted eight wives, the grammar teacher who is a punk rock god by night... The name of the column, My Jakarta, conveys the intimacy with which we all carry our hopes, experiences and dreams. Here you will get a glimpse of how others high and low relate to our steamy, unpredictable, dirty, vibrant, addictive city.

Sindhi Diaspora seeks to understand the Sindhi way of life as it has evolved over the last fifty years in the context of three distinct cultures: Filipino, Indonesian, and Chinese. A fairly extensive discussion on Sindhi society (which does not have any specific region in India it can call "home") before the partition provides the reader with a background of their business, social, and cultural life in Sindhi. It then analyzes what has remained constant in Sindhi social structure, attitudes, values, and traditions and to what degree Sindhis have adjusted to and been influenced by their host societies.

Successful transitions to enduring democracy are both difficult and rare. In Scandal and Democracy, Mary E. McCoy explores how newly democratizing nations can avoid reverting to authoritarian solutions in response to the daunting problems brought about by sudden change. The troubled transitions that have derailed democratization in nations worldwide make this problem a major concern for scholars and citizens alike. This study of Indonesia's transition from authoritarian rule sheds light on the fragility not just of democratic transitions but of democracy itself and finds that democratization's durability depends, to a surprising extent, on the role of the media, particularly its airing of political scandal and intraelite conflict. More broadly, Scandal and Democracy examines how the media's use of new freedoms can help ward off a slide into pseudodemocracy or a return to authoritarian rule. As Indonesia marks the twentieth anniversary of its democratic revolution of 1998, it remains among the world's most resilient new democracies and one of the few successful democratic transitions in the Muslim world. McCoy explains the media's central role in this change and corroborates that finding with comparative cases from Mexico, Tunisia, and South Korea, offering counterintuitive insights that help make sense of the success and failure of recent transitions to democracy.

The history of Jakarta, capital city of Indonesia, is a fascinating tapestry of religions, cultures, habits, and lifestyles woven by many peoples from within its own nation, within the region, and beyond the seas. Old Jakarta explains the reasons that attracted these people and assesses the influences that they wielded on the city. It traces Jakarta's growth from a sleepy coastal trading center, through its gradual expansion as a spice center, to its enviable position as "The Queen City of the East," and describes its path to independence. In the last chapter, Maya Jayapal compares the city as it was in the past, through its remaining historical sites, with the burgeoning city it is now.
