About This Book

The contributions that Chinese Muslims have made to Indonesia since the 15th century have been largely obscured for socio-political reasons, particularly during the New Order regime of the Suharto era. Using the evocative and provocative medium of photography, Zhuang Wubin examines the histories of the Chinese Muslims in Indonesia and the lives that they lead today. The 40 finely detailed colour photographs in this book, and their accompanying captions, attempt to counter the cultural and historical erasure by zooming in on the faces and names of this minute yet significant community in Indonesia. Additional essays by Charles Coppel, Enin Supriyanto, and Yenny Zannuba Wahid reflect upon Zhuang's work, adding to the research with personal anecdotes and historical insights. With biblio and index.
