Herb Feith came to Australia as a Jewish refugee from war-torn Europe in 1939 and went on to become an internationally renowned and passionate scholar of Indonesia. This engaging biography tells Feith's extraordinary story and traces his interest in Indonesia, his determination to establish networks of serious study of Indonesia and Southeast Asia, and his commitment to peace activism. Considering contemporary issues of public and political debate regarding Australian-Indonesian relations, this account is not only a tribute to Feith but also a history of Indonesia.
