Here is the abstract of his book.
Chapter I : History repeats itself.
He wrote that what happened in Indonesia over the past several decade of 20th century and the 1st decade of 21st century, in many ways, is just repetition of our experience during colonial period. the difference is merely in format.Long time ago they used to occupy us using military power while today they use other power.To some extent we lose economic sovereignty that weaken our political, diplomatic and military power.He appeals us to learn from the lessons of history.He cited a Spanish philosopher George Santayana who said that 'those who fail to learn from the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them'.He further wrote that the Dutch East Indies company and the Dutch government could exploit Indonesia for more than three centuries due to mechanism of corporatocracy.

Amin Rais' Thought on Religion(Islam) and Politics
...
For Amin tawheed means unity of godhead, unity of creation, unity of mankind, unity of purpose of life.
...
For Amin a muslim is a secular person if he/she believes that Islam is only about rituals and spiritual things like prayer, alms giving, fasting etc.
...
So it is clear that Islam for Amin is an ideology.
...
Therefore, according to Amin Rais, all social problems like economic backwardness, intellectual stagnation, social degeneration etc are rooted in the decadence of tawheed.
...
Amin said explicitly that the first commandment of Islam is justice, after that do good and avoid evil.
...
Amin Rais, however, according to Masykuri Abdillah, is a supporter of structuralist approach which focuses on transformation of socio-political institutions.
...
It also means that Amin Rais is open to pluralism

Amien Rais, a senior member of the National Mandate Party (PAN), had earlier said that smaller Islam-based political parties could unite to form a coalition and nominate a presidential candidate to contend with the Democratic Party, the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), the Golkar Party and other major players.
Amien was the mastermind behind the central axis scheme in 1999. He convinced leaders of several small and medium-sized parties - including PAN, the United Development Party (PPP), the National Awakening Party (PKB), the Justice Party (which is now the Prosperous Justice Party or PKS) and the Crescent and Star Party (PBB) - to join forces and nominate the late Abdurrahman "Gus Dur" Wahid for president.
...
Mahfud, who is expected to run for president on the PKB's ticket, said that a series of meetings organized by Amien had taken place, but he denied that they were to discuss efforts to revive the central axis.

Calls for an immediate investigation into the case mounted after Amien Rais admitted that he had received money from Rokhmin Dahuri to finance his 2004 presidential election campaign.The admission has supported allegations that other presidential candidates had also received funds from Rokhmin.
Amien, the former chairman of the National Mandate Party, said he accepted Rp 200 million from Rokhmin, which he submitted to the party's treasurer, and another Rp 200 million through a member of the party's 2004 election campaign team.
According to Rokhmin's deposition, he also gave presidential candidate Megawati Soekarnoputri and her running mate Hasyim Muzadi Rp 275 million, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Jusuf Kalla Rp 200 million and Wiranto and running mate Salahuddin Wahid Rp 220 million.All have denied receiving the funds.
