Berkeley. University of California Press. 1980. Stock ID #164641
xxiv + 375pp, bibliography, index, good hardback copy. "Professor Jackson's analysis of the Dar'ul Islam rebellion in West Java, Indonesia (1948-1962), is distinctive because it deals only secondarily with the rebellion itself. Instead, it takes the uprising as a laboratory for examining frequently propounded but rarely tested theories of peasant political behaviour, interviewing participants themselves and in the process undermining many assumptions about peasant rebellion. The Dar'ul Islam insurgency, in short, cannot be accounted for simply by the economic motives or ideological beliefs of its participants." From the dustjacket blurb.
