Abstract

The election of Joko Widodo (or better known by his nickname "Jokowi") as Indonesia's seventh president in the 2014 presidential election marked a milestone in the country's young democracy. For the first time, a businessman-turned-politician who was not related to the usual clutch of political and business dynasties in Indonesia was elected as the president. Furthermore, Jokowi was the first head of state who used to assume the office of local government head. Hence, Marcus Mietzner's monograph is a timely contribution to an understanding of the factors behind the rise of Jokowi to the presidency.
