"In this first book-length study of anti-Chinese hostility during the collapse of Suharto's regime, Jemma Purdey presents a close analysis of the main incidents of violence during the transitional period between 1996 and 1999, and the unprecedented process of national reflection that ensued." "The mass violence that accompanied the fall of the regime in May 1998 affected not only ethnic Chinese but also indigenous Indonesians. The author places anti-Chinese riots within this broader context, considering causes and 'agency as well as the way violence has been represented.' While ethnicity and prejudice are central to the explanation put forward, she concludes that politics, economics and religion offer additional keys to understanding why such outbreaks occurred."--BOOK JACKET.

Heather Sutherland's overview essay on geography and history is well-worth reading. Other essays less thrilling or perhaps just on different registers - this is an edited volume after all, with all the unevenness that implies. Baca ulasan lengkap
