Indonesia and China: The Politics of a Troubled Relationship

By Rizal Sukma | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

The research for this book was carried out when I was a doctoral student in the Department of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), United Kingdom. My study at the LSE was made possible by invaluable encouragement and assistance from many people and institutions. The greatest encouragement and financial support came from the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Jakarta, Indonesia. For this reason, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Centre, especially to the Executive Director Dr M. Hadi Soesastro and Director for External Affairs Ms Clara Joewono. I would also like to thank several members of CSIS's Board of Directors: Mr Jusuf Wanandi, Dr Mari E. Pangestu, Dr Soedjati Djiwandono, Dr Daoed Joesoef, Mr Harry Tjan Silalahi and Mr Sofjan Wanandi.

The completion of the thesis, which serves as the basis of this book, was also made possible by generous financial assistance by the Overseas Research Student Awards Scheme (ORS), London, and LSE's Scholarship Office. The Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) in Singapore was kind enough to allow me to make use of its excellent facilities.

My greatest intellectual debt, however, is to my supervisor, Professor Michael Leifer, who never lost interest in supervising and guiding me not only in writing the thesis, but also in encouraging me to transform it into the present book. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Professor Leifer for his invaluable suggestions, guidance, criticisms and encouragement at every stage of my study and beyond. For me, he continues to be a source of intellectual inspiration and, more importantly, a teacher to whom I can always turn for advice and guidance.

The book also owes much to several prominent Indonesians who helped formulate, influence and execute Indonesia's foreign policy in general and its policy towards China in particular. I would like to express my thanks to all of them, especially former Commander of Indonesia's Armed Forces General (ret) L.B. Moerdani, former Foreign Minister Mochtar Kusumaatmadja, and the late General (ret) Soemitro. There are also many individuals and friends who I would like to thank for all their support, especially Asnani Usman, Dr Kusnanto Anggoro, Bantarto Bandoro and Dr Luhulima, all of them are my seniors at the CSIS.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge my love and thanks to my parents and my parents-in-law for their love and support. Above all, I would like to express my
