About this product
- DescriptionFrom Rebellion to Riots is a critical analysis of the roots of contemporary violence in one of Indonesia's most ethnically heterogeneous provinces, West Kalimantan. Since the late 1960s, this province has suffered periodic outbreaks of ethnic violence among its Dayak, Malay, Madurese, and ethnic Chinese populations. Citing evidence from his research, internal military documents, and ethgraphic accounts, Jamie S. Davidson refutes popular explanations for these flare-ups. The recurrent violence has less to do with a clash of cultures, the ills of New Order - led development, or indigeus marginalization than with the ongoing politicization of ethnic and indigeus identity in the region.Looking at key historical moments, markedly different in their particulars, Davidson reveals the important links between ethnic violence and subnational politics. In one case, army officers in Soeharto's recently established New Order regime encouraged anti-Chinese sentiments. To move against communist-inspired rebellion, they recruited indigeus Dayaks to expunge tens of thousands of ethnic Chinese from interior towns and villages.This counter-insurgent bloodshed inadvertently initiated a series of clashes between Dayaks and Madurese, ather migrant community. Driven by an indigeus empowerment movement and efforts by local elites to control benefits provided by decentralization and democratization, these low-intensity riots rose to immense proportions in the late 1990s. From Rebellion to Riots demonstrates that the endemic violence in this vast region is t the inevitable outcome of its ethnic diversity, and reveals that the initial impetus for collective bloodshed is t necessarily the same as the forces that sustain it.
