Thanks to Chris for adding this page to pages at learndutch.org. It's great to be plugged in to other Dutch learners.
Also, I heard from Jan's colleague, Bianca, who blogs for the Dutch East Indies Heritage Project. Together with Mike, they're telling the politically incorrect story of decolonization. There were problems, and things could have been done a lot differently. One major problem is that Sukarno wasn't just an admirer of Japan, but Imperial Japan. So far, they're the only ones I know of telling this vital story in English and in-depth.
