Indonesia 2 In the 1990’s Indonesia was made up of people from many different ethnicities. The largest of the ethnic groups were the Javanese. The Javanese made up 45 percent of Indonesia. Other ethnic groups included the Sudanese who were 14 percent of the population, the Mandurese who were 7.5 percent, and the coastal Malays who were also 7.5 percent of the population. The other 26 percent of Indonesia was made up of small groups of minorities. One of these minorities were the Chinese (Frederick & Worden, 1993). During 1965 when President Suharto came to rule over Indonesia, tens of thousands of Chinese Indonesians were killed. The army, who claimed to be looking for communists, went on a rampage. President Suharto imposed what he called “The New Order” regime. For some businessmen who were friends with President Suharto it was a good time for them. They became very rich from government contracts that were given to them. But for the ordinary Chinese man life was made miserable. The Chinese were forced to take Indonesian names and to carry identification that would show that they were Chinese.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
