From Jail to Jailav Tan Malaka859Tillfälligt slut – klicka "Bevaka" för att få ett mejl så fort boken går att köpa igen.From Jail to Jail is the political autobiography of a central though enigmatic figure of the Indonesian Revolution. Variously labeled a communist, Trotskyite, and nationalist, Tan Malaka managed, during the several decades of his political activity, to run afoul of nearly every political group and faction involved in the Indonesian struggle for independence. Malaka was elected Chairman of the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) in 1921 and barely five years later opposed the PKI-led uprising in Indonesia. He openly opposed Sukarno's support for negotiations with the Dutch, yet Sukarno issued a decree in 1963 recognizing Tan Malaka as a hero of national independence. During his several decades of political activity he spent periods of exile and hiding in nearly every country in Southeast Asia. From Jail to Jail is one of the few known autobiographies by an Asian Marxist of the 1930's and 1940's.

"Tan Malaka's autobiography is a document both precious and rare. Rare as the autobiography of an Indonesian written in the 1940s and as the autobiography of an Asian Marxist. Precious as part textbook, part reminiscence, part polemic, a commentary on the times and a revealing window into the mind of an Asian revolutionary" -- Journal of Asian Studies "Long out of print (and certainly banned if not) in Indonesia...Helen Jarvis' annotated translation makes the stories of this man's extraordinary life accessible for the first time to people interested in the history of communism, nationalism, and revolution in Asia." -- Asian Studies Review
From Jail to Jail is the political autobiography of Sutan Ibrahim gelar Tan Malaka, an enigmatic and colorful political thinker of twentieth-century Asia, who was one of the most influential figures of the Indonesian Revolution. Variously labeled a communist, Trotskyite, and nationalist, Tan Malaka managed to run afoul of nearly every political group and faction involved in the Indonesian struggle for independence. During his decades of political activity, he spent periods of exile and hiding in nearly every country in Southeast Asia. As a Marxist who was expelled from and became a bitter enemy of his country's Communist Party and as a nationalist who was imprisoned and murdered by his own government's forces as a danger to its anticolonial struggle, Tan Malaka was and continues to be soaked in contradiction and controversy.
