(p.113) Five Relations in Production
The Political Economy of Mountain Java

Robert W. Hefner

University of California Press

The history and organization of landholding and labor organization in the highlands remain poorly documented. We know little of how colonialism affected upland labor organization and even less about the impact of commercial agriculture today. This chapter aims to provide just such a chronicle, examining the social processes that have shaped landholding and labor relations in the Tengger highlands. Neither reality is a pure market phenomenon. Both show the dramatic influence of broader shifts in Indonesian politics and society. Both illustrate the general truth that market conditions are always shaped by the legal, moral, and political circumstances of society as a whole.

Keywords:   landholding, labor organization, Tengger highlands, colonialism, Indonesian politics, Indonesian society
