This book is a study of the nature and historical development of peranakan Chinese politics in Java, with reference to the three major political streams the China-oriented Sin Po group, the Netherlands-oriented Chung Hwa Hui, and the Indonesia-oriented Partai Tionghoa Indonesia. The work is based on original sources comprising newspapers and pamphlets printed in peranakan Malay and on personal interviews. The author attempts to identify various phases in the political activities of the peranakan Chinese and presents a detailed and documented political history of this Chinese minority in Java before the Second World War. This edition features a new postscript by the author and a new chapter.
