Hans Antlöv, Jörgen Hellman (eds.)
The Java that Never Was
Academic Theories and Political Practices
Reihe: Southeast Asian Dynamics
Bd. 2, 2005, 200 S., 20.90 EUR, 20.90 CHF, br., ISBN 3-8258-6579-7

This book is about how cultures and societies on Java over the past century have been perceived and socially constructed by scholars inside and outside of Indonesia. It is a reflective book; how, on the one hand, academic theories have shaped our view of Java and, on the other hand, how the study of Java has influenced theoretical developments within a number of disciplines, including anthropology, development studies, religious studies, political science, gender studies, and the arts.
