Economy and Moral Community

(p.228) Eight Conclusion
The Political Economy of Mountain Java

Robert W. Hefner

University of California Press

This chapter suggests that we continue to make generalizations about Javanese culture and society based on what is, in fact, a narrow understanding of the island's regional variation. This much, however, is clear: highland communities must be accorded a greater role in any attempt to achieve a broader understanding of Javanese or Southeast Asian economy and society. Highland history is distinctive; its development sheds new light on the forces that have shaped Southeast Asia as a whole.

Keywords:   Tengger highlands, Java, highland communities
