The compelling personal story of human rights lawyer Yap Thiam Hien (1913-1989) brings decades of modern Indonesian history to life. No Concessions is a penetrating analysis of the trajectory of the Chinese minority in Indonesia over close to a century and the remarkable making of a civic leader. Without abandoning his ethnic roots, Yap transcended them by becoming a courageous legal defender of civil and human rights of all oppressed Indonesians, including former communists and radical Muslims. Daniel S. Lev (1931-2006) was professor of political science at the University of Washington. Among his publications are Legal Evolution and Political Authority in Indonesia: Selected Essays; Islamic Courts in Indonesia: A Study in the Political Bases of Legal Institutions; The Transition to Guided Democracy: Indonesian Politics, 1957-1959, and, as co-editor, Making Indonesia.
