The Indonesian Revolution or War of Independence took place between 1945 and 1949. Muhammed Yuanda Zara investigates how the Indonesian Republic employed political propaganda to mobilize the population and secure their support for the causes of independence and nation building. He looks at how the leadership of the Republic conceived and organised their political propaganda during the revolution, and the effects (both positive and negative) on the objective of achieving and preserving the independence of a nation state in the making.
