Tense, intelligent and gripping, Freedom Square presents a rich portrayal of the terrifying crisis which brought the Soeharto and Habibie families to power..Murray Stephenson, an official at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta in 1965, is drawn into the turmoil of the last days of the Sukarno Government.
