Not many people know that Francis Drake was the first British navigator to sail into the Indonesian archipelago, arriving before the Dutch in the fabled Spice Islands of the Malukus in 1579 and beginning a relationship which has spanned more than 400 years.

Three hundred of those years were characterized by actual or diplomatic wars with Holland over the control of the islands which the Dutch sought to monopolize. There would also be tension with Indonesia’s founding President, Sukarno, when he launched military operations against Malaysia.

But, whatever the ups and downs of their relationships with the islands of the East Indies, the British kept coming back and today are the second largest investor in the country with growing two way trade in a great deal more than nutmegs and cloves.

This is the fascinating story of the British in Indonesia, never before told within the covers of a single book.
