1Agus Mulyana, Aan Komariah
During Indonesia’s New Order period, history school textbooks received special attention from the Suharto’s governance.

These instructional materials, as one would expect, inevitably contained political agendas of the ruling government. This paper reported a critical discourse analysis on the political ideology contained in the historical narratives portrayed by the school textbook during the New Order regime.
