Map, xiii + 342pp, index, paperback, minor wear extremities, light soiling to edges, occasional marginal notes and underlining in pencil to first chapter, a sound copy. Examines the experiences and responses of the early generations of urbanized Indonesians. The focus is set on Indonesian workers in the modern sector of the urban economy in the first two and a half decades of the 20th century and on workers in the sugar factories in Java who shared something of the proletarian experience of urban workers. It begins with the struggles to create the first labour unions in the 1910s and ends with the colonial government's suppression of union activities after the Surabaya strikes in late 1925.
