Joko Widodo - The Start Of A New Indonesian Dynasty?

'Man of Contradictions: Joko Widodo and the Struggle to Remake Indonesia' is a book by Ben Bland, detailing the remarkable story of Joko Widodo’s meteoric rise from furniture maker to President of Indonesia in just a few short years.

Lyn Mak explores the contradictions of Joko Widodo and speaks to Ben about Jokowi’s positioning as an ‘everyman’, and how that has faded the further up the political ladder he climbed.
