The Political Economy of Mountain Java: An Interpretive History

Robert Hefner


A rich and sensitive portrait of a changing peasantry, this study is also a general inquiry into the nature of status, class, and community in the developing world, presenting an analysis designed to bridge the gap between village studies and social history. It describes the forces that have shaped upland politics and society from pre-colonial times to the Green Revolution today.

Keywords: peasantry, status, class, community, developing world, village studies, social history, Green Revolution, politics, society
