2009 reissue of the 1960 study, with key documents, of the Communist uprisings in Indonesia of 1926-27. A thoughtful introduction (1960) assesses the impacts the uprisings had on the Dutch administration, which included the major swing from the modernising "Ethical" policies introduced in 1901 to tighter controls and official tutelage in all areas. They are also seen to have left a deeply disillusioned mass-movement as well as some permanent changes in views of and towards local authority. The first now-translated 1927 Report by the Governor-General dealt with the actions and structure of the Communist Party. The 1927 Bantam Report reviewed the needs of the area on a wide basis and called for policies of cooperation. The political section of the 1928 secret report of the Investigative Committee details the activities and personalities of the Communist Party leaders.
