Subud is a Way of Life - Harlinah Longcroft
As the official historian of Subud, and as a witness to some important
phases of its development, Harlinah Longcroft has had unique access
to a wealth of fact and anecdote in writing this introduction. She
pays attention equally to the kejiwaan or spiritual side and to
Subud as an organization in the world. The result is a balanced,
down-to-earth account of Subud as it is.

History of Subud Vol 1 - The Coming of Subud 1901 - 1959 - Book
1 The Beginning In Indonesia - Harlinah Longcroft
This first instalment of Harlinah Longcroft's official history of
Subud is set almost entirely in Java, ending in May 1957 as Bapak
waits at the airport in Jakarta to board the plane for England.
In outline, the story of Bapak's early life and the coming of the
latihan is already well known from his Autobiography and references
in the published talks. By drawing on a far wider range of sources,
including interviews with contemporaries, and supplying an historical
and geographical context, Harlinah succeeds in liberating our view
of Bapak and the earliest phase of Subud from the crystallisation's
of later years. The text is complemented by 43 historic photographs
from the International Archives - most previously unpublished -
and 7 full-page maps. If there were any book on Subud that I were
to recommend to anyone, Harlinah Longcroft's History would be it.

Saving Grace is an account of one man's 30 year experience of Subud.
This book is aimed at anybody who feels human existence must be

best and dying.

Subud - Robert Lyle
With a foreword by Varindra Tarzie Vittachi, formerly Deputy Director
of the United Nations Children's Fund.
This is a straightforward introduction to Subud, using wherever
possible the words of its founder. The early chapters recount the
beginnings of Subud and the dissemination of its latihan kejiwaan
(spiritual exercise) throughout the world. Robert Lyle then examines
the bearing of the latihan on various spheres of human life: the
relations between man and woman, children, education, work and money,
politics, charitable activity, culture and religion.
