Images of Malay-Indonesian Identity
Michael Hitchcock & Victor T King (eds)
The term 'Indonesia' was coined for the Malay Archipelago by Europeans in the 19th century. A hundred years later this name was taken on by the former Dutch East Indies on independence, when the inhabitants of the archipelago had nationhood thrust on them. The contributors to this book chart how the various identities of different parts of the new nation jostled in an attempt to forge a new Indonesian identity where, even though Malays were an overwhelming majority in the country, common characteristics were often far from clear cut. 282 pages with 2 maps, 39 black and white plates and an index.
