I read this at the library (could not take it home cause I do not have the membership card), so it takes several days to finish it. But book like this, I think should be read slowly. Not only because of this book is so well-observed with massive details account of the life of 'Nyai' and 'pergundikan' complete with database from qualified sources, but also because the writer wrote the story with sympathy (and he's Belanda!) and personal insight that can be felt and it did something on my body (tr ...more

A fascinating account of Indo-European culture in colonial Indonesia, and especially the lives of the native concubines of colonials. I am always amazed when I read historical accounts to realize how different the lives, especially of women, were in the past.

“Nyai dan Pergundikan di Hindia Belanda”, buku ini berkisah tentang pergundikan yang terjadi di jaman pemerintahan VOC, pada masa itu, dalam penantian terhadap calon isteri Eropa yang sesuai, para lelaki Eropa pun memuaskan diri bersama para peremupan pribumi muda.

Sebuah fenomena yang telah diketahui ba

Saya selalu menyukai bacaan tentang zaman hindia belanda. Jadi mungkin bagi sebagian orang, rating saya terasa kurang adil. ^o^

Buku ini dimulai dengan pertanyaan yang bergejolak dalam batin sang penulis, Reggie Baay tentang asal-asulnya sendiri. Tentang siapa neneknya dan mengapa ayahnya selalu menolak membicarakannya. Baru setelah ayahnya meninggal, Reggie mendapatkan sekelumit petunjuk tentang neneknya, yaitu seorang nyai di Jawa.

Dari sana, Reggie mulai menuturkan semua gambaran tentang para n

Membaca buku ini buat saya malu. Ternyata sebegitu sedikit pengetahuan saya tentang perempuan dalam sejarah perjuangan Indonesia. Buku ini juga menunjukkan secara gamblang bagaimana politik kekuasan mengatur seksualitas rakyat dan jajahannya demi efisiensi manajemen negara koloni.

Bagi penggemar Pramoedya Ananta Toer, apalagi kalau sudah tuntas baca tetraloginya. Buku ini betul-betul memberikan konteks. Saya jadi paham bagaimana Pram terinspirasi melukiskan tokoh Nyai Ontosoroh, terutama Nyai Sur

Senangnya buku ini kembali..............!
Sebenarnya sudah lama dapat hadiah dari Sis Lita, hanya begitu mau dibaca di kantor (saat istirahat tentunya) di lihat penguasa dan seperti biasa... saya pinjam dulu keluar bagaikan sabda hiks...

Waktu itu baru baca sampai halaman sekian puluh.
Buat diriku yang tidak menyukai sejarah, buku ini sangat mempesona.

Moga2 selesai dalam waktu cepat yah

I haven't read this book because it's so hard to find in Australia. Available for purchase in Indonesia, sure, but no postage options outside of Indonesia. Anyone willing to give away or on-sell their copy, preferably in QLD? Will pay postage cost. Please e-mail asthorre@yahoo.com. Thanks.
