Books Description:

Buku ini bercerita tentang perjalanan seorang tokoh bernama Minke. Minke adalah salah satu anak pribumi yang sekolah di HBS. Pada masa itu, yang dapat masuk ke sekolah HBS adalah orang-orang keturunan Eropa. Minke adalah seorang pribumi yang pandai, ia sangat pandai menulis. Tulisannya bisa membuat orang sampai terkagum-kagum dan dimuat di berbagai Koran Belanda pada saat itu. Sebagai seorang pribumi, ia kurang disukai oleh siswa-siswi Eropa lainnya. Minke digambarkan sebagai seorang revolusioner di buku ini. Ia berani melawan ketidakadilan yang terjadi pada bangsanya. Ia juga berani memberontak terhadap kebudayaan Jawa, yang membuatnya selalu di bawah. Selain tokoh Minke, buku ini juga menggambarkan seorang "Nyai" yang bernama Nyai Ontosoroh. Nyai pada saat itu dianggap sebagai perempuan yang tidak memiliki norma kesusilaan karena statusnya sebagai istri simpanan. Statusnya sebagai seorang Nyai telah membuatnya sangat menderita, karena ia tidak memiliki hak asasi manusia yang sepantasnya. Tetapi, yang menariknya adalah Nyai Ontosoroh sadar akan kondisi tersebut sehingga dia berusaha keras dengan terus-menerus belajar, agar dapat diakui sebagai seorang manusia. Nyai Ontosoroh berpendapat, untuk melawan penghinaan, kebodohan, kemiskinan, dan sebagainya hanyalah dengan belajar. Minke juga menjalin asmara dan akhirnya menikah dengan Annelies, anak dari Nyai Ontosoroh dan tuan Mellema.Melalui buku ini, Pram menggambarkan bagaimana keadaan pemerintahan kolonialisme Belanda pada saat itu secara hidup. Pram, menunjukan betapa pentingnya belajar. Dengan belajar, dapat mengubah nasib. Seperti di dalam buku ini, Nyai yang tidak bersekolah, dapat menjadi seorang guru yang hebat bagi siswa HBS dan Minke. Bahkan pengetahuan si nyai itu, yang didapat dari pengalaman, dari buku-buku, dan dari kehidupan sehari-hari, ternyata lebih luas dari guru-guru sekolah HBS.

Books Description:

Joseph Conrad, Jean Rhys, and Pramoedya Ananta Toer are writers renowned for crafting narratives of great technical skill that resonate with potent truths on the colonial condition. Yet given the generational and geographical boundaries that separated them, they are seldom considered in conjunction with one another. The Passage of Literature unites the three in a bracing comparative study that breaks away from traditional conceptions of modernism, going beyond temporal periodization and the entrenched Anglo-American framework that undergirds current scholarship. This study nimbly traces a trio of distinct yet interrelated modernist genealogies. English modernism as exemplified by Conrad's Malay trilogy is productively paired with the hallmark work of Indonesian modernism, Pramoedya's Buru quartet. The two novel sequences, penned years apart, narrate overlapping histories of imperialism in the Dutch East Indies, and both make opera central for understanding the cultural dynamic of colonial power. Creole modernism--defined not only by the linguistic diversity of the Caribbean but also by an alternative vision of literary history--provides a transnational context for reading Rhys's Good Morning, Midnight and Wide Sargasso Sea, each novel mapped in relation to the colonial English and postcolonial Indonesian coordinates of Conrad's The Shadow-Line and Pramoedya's This Earth of Mankind. All three modernisms-English, Creole, and Indonesian-converge in a discussion of the Indonesian figure of the nyai, a concubine or house servant, who represents the traumatic core of transnational modernism. Throughout the study, Pramoedya's extraordinary effort to reconstruct the lost record of Indonesia's emergence as a nation provides a model for reading each fragmentary passage of literature as part of an ongoing process of decolonizing tradition. Drawing on translated and un-translated works of fiction and nonfiction, GoGwilt effectively reexamines the roots of Anglophone modernist studies, thereby laying out the imperatives of a new postcolonial philology even as he resituates European modernism within the literary, linguistic, and historical context of decolonization.

Books Description:

As the world moves into the twentieth century, Minke, one of the few European-educated Javanese, optimistically starts a new life in a new town: Betawi. With his enrollment in medical school and the opportunity to meet new people, there is every reason to believe that he can leave behind the tragedies of the past. But Minke can no more escape his past than he can escape his situation as part of an oppressed people under a foreign power. As his world begins to fall apart, Minke draws a small but fervent group around him to fight back against colonial exploitation. During the struggle, Minke finds love, friendship, and betrayal—with tragic consequences. And he goes from wanting to understand his world to wanting to change it. Pramoedya's full literary genius is again evident in the remarkable characters that populate the novel—and in his depiction of a people's painful emergence from colonial domination and the shackles of tradition.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject History - Asia, grade: A, University of Airlangga, course: English Literature, language: English, abstract: ABSTRACT Zhis paper, through postcolonial-feminist criticism, attempts to prove the existence of the oppression toward the Javanese women during the Dutch’s colonialism in Indonesia. The analysis is focused to the character of Sanikem which is also known as Nyai Ontosoroh in Toer’s This Earth of Mankind. Firstly it aims to know whether there is a relation between the Dutch’s colonialism and the Javanese feudalism with the oppression towards Sanikem and then analyse how the dual hierarchy of the Dutch’s colonialism and Javanese’s feudal system contribute to the oppression. The second is to discover shifting of Sanikem’s personality which makes her aware of the oppression and struggle against it. And the last is to examine whether, under the oppression, Sanikem successfully voices her rights or whether her struggles results in vain. In conducting the analysis, cultural and historical background will be applied in the thesis along with the discussion of the subaltern women in a colonized country established by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. This research applies qualitative method which means that the data is taken from the novel itself which is This Earth of Mankind, both digital and non-digital library research, journals, and other resources which are appropriate in conducting the analysis.

Books Description:

With House Of Glass comes the final chapter of Pramoedya's epic quartet, set in the Dutch East Indies at the turn of the century. A novel of heroism, passion, and betrayal, it provides a spectacular conclusion to a series hailed as one of the great works of modern literature. At the start of House of Glass, Minke, writer and leader of the dissident movement, is now imprisoned—and the narrative has switched to Pangemanann, a former policeman, who has the task of spying and reporting on those who continue the struggle for independence. But the hunter is becoming the hunted. Pangemanann is a victim of his own conscience and has come to admire his adversaries. He must decide whether the law is to safeguard the rights of the people or to control the people. He fears the loss of his position, his family, and his self-respect. At last Pangemanann sees that his true opponents are not Minke and his followers, but rather the dynamism and energy of a society awakened.

Books Description:

In Child of All Nations, the reader is immediately swept up by a story that is profoundly feminist, devastatingly anticolonialist—and full of heartbreak, suspense, love, and fury. Pramoedya immerses the reader in a world that is astonishing in its vividness: the cultural whirlpool that was the Dutch East Indies of the 1890s. A story of awakening, it follows Minke, the main character of This Earth of Mankind, as he struggles to overcome the injustice all around him. Pramoedya's full literary genius is evident in the brilliant characters that populate this world: Minke's fragile Mixed-Race wife; a young Chinese revolutionary; an embattled Javanese peasant and his impoverished family; the French painter Jean Marais, to name just a few.

Books Description:

A penetrating, page-turning tour of a post-human Earth In The World Without Us, Alan Weisman offers an utterly original approach to questions of humanity's impact on the planet: he asks us to envision our Earth, without us.In this far-reaching narrative, Weisman explains how our massive infrastructure would collapse and finally vanish without human presence; which everyday items may become immortalized as fossils; how copper pipes and wiring would be crushed into mere seams of reddish rock; why some of our earliest buildings might be the last architecture left; and how plastic, bronze sculpture, radio waves, and some man-made molecules may be our most lasting gifts to the universe. The World Without Us reveals how, just days after humans disappear, floods in New York's subways would start eroding the city's foundations, and how, as the world's cities crumble, asphalt jungles would give way to real ones. It describes the distinct ways that organic and chemically treated farms would revert to wild, how billions more birds would flourish, and how cockroaches in unheated cities would perish without us. Drawing on the expertise of engineers, atmospheric scientists, art conservators, zoologists, oil refiners, marine biologists, astrophysicists, religious leaders from rabbis to the Dali Lama, and paleontologists---who describe a prehuman world inhabited by megafauna like giant sloths that stood taller than mammoths---Weisman illustrates what the planet might be like today, if not for us. From places already devoid of humans (a last fragment of primeval European forest; the Korean DMZ; Chernobyl), Weisman reveals Earth's tremendous capacity for self-healing. As he shows which human devastations are indelible, and which examples of our highest art and culture would endure longest, Weisman's narrative ultimately drives toward a radical but persuasive solution that needn't depend on our demise. It is narrative nonfiction at its finest, and in posing an irresistible concept with both gravity and a highly readable touch, it looks deeply at our effects on the planet in a way that no other book has.

Books Description:

Muhamadiyah dan NU adalah kekuatan non-negara, kekuatan masyarakat sipil Islam yang otoritatif, berhadapan dengan kekuatan negara. Di pihak lain, negara juga berharap banyak pada kekuatan kedua organisasi massa itu untuk terlibat dalam proses demokratisasi dalam masa transisi seperti saat ini. Peran kedua ormas tersebut pada faktanya memang tak bisa diremehkan. Kekuatan moral dan intelektual menjadi modal sosial yang lebih dari cukup untuk membangun kesadaran politik pada tingkat publik di satu pihak, dan untuk menjaga kohesivitas antar-elemen masyarakat di pihak yang lain. Buku ini mencoba melihat secara lebih detail pergulatan kelembagaan maupun individu di dalam Muhammadiyah dan NU dalam menyikapi proses demokratisasi, serta persepsi publik terhadap demokrasi dan segala isu turunannya. Meski telah banyak buku yang ditulis mengenai pergulatan Muhammadiyah dan NU dalam konteks relasi agama dan negara, buku ini menyumbangkan gambaran nyata dari perdebatan internal kedua organisasi itu, baik pada tingkat konsepsi maupun operasional. Buku seperti ini layak diapresiasi oleh berbagai kalangan yang ingin melakukan studi lebih lanjut tentang proses transisi menuju demokrasi di Indonesia, dan bagi peminat kajian relasi Islam dan negara di Indonesia.
