Shelves: history, reference
Substansi yang termaktub di halaman belakang cukup memberi imaji yang menantang: mengapa kultur Belanda yang dikenal pluralis dan ultra-toleran justru menghasilkan negara-negara bekas jajahan yang ultra-fanatis dan sektarian (Indonesia, Suriname dan Afsel di antaranya).

Buku ini memberi penjelasan tentang ketercerabutan ras yang mengakibatkan kehilangan konteks untuk menerapkan nilai dan budaya yang membentuk mereka di tanah aslinya. Memberi penilaian tentang "kesalahan" penjajah Belanda dalam me

I liked her way of discussing imperial memory.
She deals with familiar themes like women, sexuality, unruly child discourse, objectification of primitive tribes from the colonizer's point of view, which became quite "standard" as themes of colonial studies today but she was probably one of the pioneers. Nice prose, and good details. It was dangerously too interesting as a reading for my oral exam.

Oke, singkat saja, buku ini saya kasih bintang dua hanya karena saya capek membacanya (alias ga selesai).

Mungkin kalau2... kalau2 yah, seandainya dibaca ulang, bisa nambah bintangnya, karena saya sebenarnya suka bagian Gouda mendeskripsikan keluarganya yang punya pandangan romantis berbeda tentang Indonesia...

While Frances Gouda presents a wealth of information in this book, I found her way of structuring this particular information to be very unhelpful. Also not a very good introductory text (not that it claims to be anything like that, but it was more or less used that way in my course).
