Acerca de


For over forty years R.H. Barnes has explored what it is possible to know of
the history of the region of eastern Indonesia stretching from Flores to Alor, where there is little in the way of a formal record of the past. During that period he has accumulated over five years living in the area often in the houses of local people taking part in the daily lives and community affairs of many friends and acquaintances. He has traveled widely in these islands, and has conducted extended research in three separate sites on the islands of Lembata and Adonara. He has also consulted archives in The Netherlands and Indonesia, and used the resources of many libraries. The research resulted in three books and many articles. Here he presents a collection of articles that look at the past and representations of the past from a variety of perspectives. Above all, they attempt to open up the past of what once were nearly completely illiterate peoples. They contribute to a developing historiography of eastern Indonesia, and exemplify a continuing rapprochement of the disciplines of history and social anthropology.
