Mehr On The Fall of the PKI

Nataniel Mehr, who has a forthcoming book called Constructive Bloodbath In Indonesia: The US, Britain, and the Mass Killings of 1965-66, has written an article in Monthly Review titled “The Fall of the Indonesian Communist Party,” which places the PKI’s own ideology in relation to Russian and Chinese policies of the time.  Perhaps most interesting to me was his inclusion of a Nov. 1966 self-assessment by exhiled PKI leaders in China.
