About This Book

The focus of this scholarly and clearly-written monograph is on the role and context of the Chinese population of Java in the last period of Dutch colonialism. The complex nexus of loyalties and expectations both written outside the Chinese groupings -- peranakans, more recent immigrants, and major business figures -- is explored and related to the changing and increasingly institutionalised colonial structure. Citizenship, education, military service, the impacts of WWI and of political changes in China and anti-colonial movements are among the areas addressed and related to the persisting ambivalences of the peranakan situation. With references and reading list.
