In the first major work on Indonesian historiography to have appeared in any language, twenty-two outstanding scholars survey available source materials in Asia and Europe and discuss the current state of Indonesian historical scholarship, the approaches and methods that might be fruitful for future research, and the problems that confront Indonesian historians today. The contributions which can be made to historical studies by other disciplines - such as economics, sociology, anthropology, and international law - are discussed by specialists in these fi elds.

Gangsters and Revolutionaries is the first in-depth study of one of the 'peopleżs armiesż which emerged from the chaos at the close of World War II in Indonesia to join the struggle for Indonesian independence in 1945. It traces the story of the Peopleżs Militia of Greater Jakarta from its origins as a loose network of petty criminals and labour bosses in the slums of urban Jakarta and the feudal estates of the surrounding countryside, to its destruction at the hands of the Indonesian army in the late 1940s. This book examines the social basis of the Indonesian revolution, especially the wa

Reading Contemporary Indonesian Muslim Women Writers looks at the work of four writers—Titis Basino P.I., Ratna Indraswari Ibrahim, Abidah El Kalieqy, and Helvy Tiana Rosa—paying particular attention to questions of how gender is constructed and in turn constructs the identities, roles, and status of Muslim women in Indonesia. In addition, Diah Ariani Arimbi focuses on issues of authenticity, representation, and power in these authors’ works and details how each woman challenged perceptions of Muslim women in Islamic societies.

In these studies, scholars from the United States and Indonesia identify some of the cultural roots of Indonesian political behavior. The authors, representing the fields of anthropology, history, and political science, explore the ways in which traditional institutions, beliefs, values, and ethnic origins affect notions of power and rebellion, influence political party affiliations, and create new modes of cultural expression. Using two different but contemporary approaches, the authors show what can be learned about Indonesia through use of the Western concepts of "culture" and "politics." P

"What are the alternatives to slash-and-burn in the Indonesian uplands? Based on fieldwork conducted in 1997 in some 40 small regions throughout Indonesia, as well as an extensive literature review, From Slash and Burn to Replanting, examines these alternatives. Economic and ecological changes in Indonesia, were critical during 1997 and 1998. The currency and economic crisis struck city dwellers, while El Nino and forest clearing had devastating effects on rural areas.

'The Malaysia-Indonesia Remittance Corridor' finds that Indonesian migrants to Malaysia are showing an increasingly clear preference for informal transfer mechanisms compared to their counterparts in other countries. A little less than half of all Indonesian migrants overseas-thought to be around 2 million-are working in Malaysia. An increasing number of migrants are women, and the corridor is also marked by a high number of undocumented migrants. Only about 10 percent of the estimated flow of remittances into Indonesia from Malaysia is transferred through the formal system. The extent of this
