When conducting research on Indonesia start with pages 555-564 of the Historical Dictionary of East Indonesia (3rd edition). This will provide a good introduction to doing research on the country. For a good overview of the country see The Indonesia reader: history, culture, politics edited by Tineke Hellwig and Eric Tagliacozzo. For a book on the latest developments and a guide to the key issues and debates on Indonesia today see the Routledge Handbook of Contemporary Indonesia. 2018. For articles see the Leiden University catalog link and the database Bibliography of Asian Studies.
