Revolutionary Worlds

Local Perspectives and Dynamics of the Indonesian Independence War, 1945-1949

Revolutionary Worlds looks at the Indonesian revolution (1945-1949) from a local and regional perspective. In several contributions, Indonesian and Dutch researchers bring to life the revolutionary world from widely differing perspectives. The authors explain how Indonesian, Chinese, Indian and Eurasian civilians, fighters, farmers and officials experienced and shaped the chaotic period between 1945 and 1950. The book focuses on survival strategies, mobilization, and the use of force against the backdrop of the Indonesian and Dutch authorities’ efforts to gain or maintain control.

Uniting two national historiographical traditions which have long remained largely separate, Revolutionary Worlds is the result of a special collaboration between the Indonesian research project Proklamasi, Kemerdekaan, Revolusi dan Perang di Indonesia ('Proclamation, Independence, Revolution and War in Indonesia', Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta) and the Dutch research group of the Regional Studies project, under the umbrella of the research programme Independence, Decolonization, Violence and War in Indonesia, 1945-1950.
