About This Book

2009 reissue of the 1964 Cornell study of Peranakan Chinese politics in Indonesia since the end of the Colonial government. After a background summary which identifies the totok ("pure") and peranakan (local-born or with "mixed" background), factors in the Chinese population, the post-1954 policies regarding citizenship issues are explored. The 1957 China-Indonesia Citizenship treaty and the implications of the ban against aliens trading are discussed. The influence of Baperki, the Consultative Body for Indonesian Citizenship, the 1960s exodus to China of "aliens" from many areas, and the background of the 1963, anti-Chinese riots are described. Ongoing (1964) tensions regarding assimilation and Indonesian views of the Chinese are discussed in the final section. Indexed on Google.
