Product Overview

This book presents a case study of Europes impact on an old and distinctive non-European civilisation. Part One deals with the elements in Europes strength, technological, political and intellectual. It also uses Wallersteins world-systems perspective to give an economic dimension to this picture of the new world of Europe, and then looks at the important question of the changing place of the Dutch in the new economic order from the seventeenth to the eighteenth century. This is followed by a brief account of the history of the Dutch East-India Company in Java, and its political effects.Part Two deals with the nature of the Javanese ancien regime, both in court and in provincial circles, with a focus on society and civilisation, rather than those staples of Javanese historiography to date, political events and economic statistics.Part Three deals with the overall pattern set by the VOCs changing economic imperatives and with the impact of the successive tides of capitalism on three regional societies of Java.Part Four deals with intellectual shifts that took place in this period, and argues that these shifts were less conservative than the socio-economic ones described in Part Three and, though more fragile and vulnerable, were crucial for the future.The conclusion attempts to show the significance of these developments for modern Indonesia and the way in which some of the dynamics begun in this period are being played out in the contemporary world. *Author: Kumar, Ann *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 472 *Publication Date: 1997/05/27 *Language: English *Dimensions: 3.66 x 2.36 x 1.57 inches
