The Emergence of the Modern Indonesian Elite

By Robert Van Niel | Go to book overview

FOREWORD

This book is essentially a revised version of my doctoral dissertation Development of the Indonesian Elite in the Early Twentieth Century, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, 1954. No effort has been made to incorporate or cite new materials bearing upon this general topic which have appeared since 1954, or to add to the footnoting by citing additional older materials, for it was felt this could go on almost indefinitely and would delay publication into the unforseeable future. Instead the revision has taken the form of eliminating material which did not seem to bear directly upon the argument, and of reducing repetition. Three studies published since 1954 have made me feel more certain of some of my conclusions and analyses. The material from these studies has not been incorporated into this book since their relationship is tangential, but their presence has permitted me to proceed with less trepidation into the publication of this work on which I personally continue to entertain certain questions of interpretation and analysis. These studies are: C. Geertz, The Social Context of Economic Change: an Indonesian Case Study (Center for International Studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1956); R. M. Koentjaraningrat , A Preliminary Description of the Javanese Kinship System ( Yale University Southeast Asia Studies, 1957); and Leslie H. Palmier , Status Groups in Java, Indonesia (A Thesis submitted for the degree of Ph. D. in the University of London, 1956).

This study is not and was never meant to be an exhaustive study of Indonesian history during the first quarter of the twentieth century. It is rather an interpretation based on wide reading of generally available primary and secondary works, and a careful analysis and evaluation of certain unique sources of information such as conversations with numerous Indonesians and Hollanders
