9780813516493: Javanese Lives: Women and Men in Modern Indonesian Society

Java is the most populous island of Indonesia, the fifth largest nation in the world. Yet despite its importance, outsiders know little about the country or its people. With the help of Indonesian students and scholars, Walter L. Williams has collected and translated the life histories of twenty-seven Javanese women and men. The people interviewed tell how they have coped with rapid social and economic change, and the transformation of their traditions. Williams has carefully selected the individuals he includes to represent a wide diversity of Java's people. We hear from fascinating men and women of various religions, from the rich and the poor, and from different ethnic backgrounds. Diversity is a constant theme, as evidenced by a poor pedicab driver who can barely scrape along, by a rich businesswoman who explains how she balances her professional and domestic roles, by an educated and respected homosexual school principal, and by an illiterate mother of fourteen children. All of them present in their lives a unique Javanese approach to living.

These oral histories were derived from elderly people, who have a larger perspective on the changes they have seen in their lifetimes. The focus of the first section of the book is the way people have adapted in their daily lives to massive social and economic changes. In the middle section, we hear from the Javanese who represent traditional values in the midst of change. Finally, we hear from educators and parents who tell us of their concerns for Indonesian youth and the future of Indonesia.

About the Author:

Walter L. Williams is associate professor of anthropology and the study of women and men in society at the University of Southern California.

From Library Journal:

This is a set of 27 short autobiographical interviews conducted by the author and his collaborators in Java in 1987-88. While a wide range of occupational types are included, the emphasis on more or less urban, middle-class Javanese is likely to give a distorted impression about the Javanese population--with its vast numbers of rural farmers--to readers not already familiar with the region. Nonetheless, the individuality and determination of these people is immediately apparent, as is their overwhelming sense of history: of the glories of their precolonial kingdoms, the ignominy of Dutch colonial rule, the horrors of Japanese occupation during World War II, and the pride that has come with independence. Everyone seems conscious of how these events have shaped their lives. For academic collections.
