The Netherlands And the Dutch East Indies at the World Exhibitions, 1880-1931
In their heyday European colonial powers not only used their subjects overseas to fight their battles, but also transported them and carefully selected examples of their culture back to their home countries as exhibits. In this book, the author recounts Dutch efforts to show off their subjects and their produce from what is now Indonesia at the world exhibitions held between 1880 and 1931. She examines how these exhibitions reflected on both the perceived and actual identities of both the organisers and the participants. New Hardback First Edition. 478 pages with a bibliography, a subject index and a name index and several black and white photographs.
