Abstract:
The concept of de facto or informal alliance association is used as an analytical tool with which to assess the quality of the relationship between Indonesia and the United States in the period 1966-75. To this end, this thesis considers three major aspects of that relationship: economic cooperation, political encouragement and military assistance. An examination of these three features of convergence in the relationship between Indonesia' ~~d the United States is undertaken in the wider ii. context of the principles of Indonesia's "independent and active" foreign policy as interpreted and practised by the Suharto Administration. The relationship between the two states was not without its tensions, but it was distinguished nonetheless by a sense of common purpose in security matters. The period 1966-75 has been chosen because it marked the onset of a major departure in Indonesian foreign policy and terminates with the end of an epoch i11 American involvement in Southeast Asia.
