The Crescent and the Rising Sun: Indonesian Islam under the Japanese Occupation, 1942-1945

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book grew out of a doctoral dissertation presented to the Graduate Faculty of Cornell University in 1955. I owe a lasting debt of gratitude to my erstwhile advisers in that University, especially to Professors George McT. Kahin and John M. Echols, who steered my interest in the direction of Indonesian Islam and generously provided counsel and encouragement. Through their cooperation I was enabled to use a unique collection of primary source materials relating to the Japanese occupation of Indonesia. While studying at Cornell University, I also had the good fortune of being a student of the late Haji Agus Salim, "'Grand Old Man'" of the Indonesian independence movement and veteran leader of Indonesian Islam. I learned much from him in lectures and seminars, and perhaps more still from the many conversations in which he freely shared his unrivalled first-hand knowledge and experiences with me. The many Indonesian visitors to the Cornell campus, as well as my fellow students there, Indonesians and others, did much to sharpen my judgment. I am, finally, indebted to the staff of the Cornell University Library, who unfailingly and courteously helped me through all stages of my research.

I had hoped to be able to undertake a study trip to Holland and Japan, and to re-visit Indonesia, where I had previously spent seven years of my life, including the years of the Japanese occupation. Only such an extended study tour could have provided me with personal contacts, and thus with the answers to some, at least, of the many gaps that remained after completion of my research in printed sources. Unfortunately, I had neither the time nor the financial resources to accomplish these
