Ariel Heryanto is a Senior Lecturer at Melbourne Institute of Asian Languages and Societies, The University of Melbourne. His research interests include cultural studies, media and identity politics.

"Heryanto's analysis of power is subtle and original, informed by both a deep knowledge of recent events in Indonesia and an admirable familiarity with social theory...this book succeeds in transcending customary analytical frameworks. It is a valuable book that should be a central reference point for any debate about Indonesia's post-1965 politics."--Pacific Affairs, Vol 79 No 1, Spring 2006

"Combining sophisticated use of social theory with the extended analysis of a case study and a variety of materials from popular culture, Ariel presents a thesis that should be of great interest to anyone who seeks to understand contemporary Indonesian political culture."--Bulletin of Indonesian Economic Studies, Vol 42 Issue 3, December 2006

"This book shows the author's mastery of modern theories and profound analytical ability"--Dr Asvi Warman Adam, Tempo, Volume 1 No 31, April 2006

"State Terrorism and Political Identity in Indonesia provides an insightful look at one of the crucial memories of Indonesia as a nation-state, and Heryanto is very comprehensive in exploring both empirical and theoretical angles"--The Jakarta Post, November 12, 2006

"A profoundly important book for anyone wanting to understand Indonesia today"--Tapol, Vol 184, October 2006
