From an English-Japanese phrase book written by Dewi Sukarno, the Japanese widow of Achmed Sukarno, president of Indonesia from 1945 to 1967.
Achmed Sukarno was a known Communist, but he was presented to the Indonesian people and the world as a "democrat," "nationalist," and "Muslim." President Sukarno's record became steadily more unmistakable, but he did not unequivocally admit to being a Communist until 1962, when he went to Russia to receive the Order of Lenin.
