Unmarked Graves: Death and Survival in the Anti-Communist Violence in East Java, Indonesia

Examines the anticommunist violence in East Java during 1965-1966, tracing the Indonesia “Left” and its histories. Analyzes how the partai Komunis Indonesia (PKI) grew to become a mass party and the outbreak of the 30th September movement in Jakarta and its effects on the Indonesia Left. Discusses political fugitives’ survival strategies, the life of PKI in the South Blitar base where the party was sought to hide and rebuild, and the army’s perceptions about the villagers and how they were treated during and after the operation.
