About this book


The impact of both colonial economic policies and Western enterprise on indigenous agriculture in Indonesia has long been a matter of contention among scholars. This book provides the first quantification and assessment of the broad long-term trends in agricultural production and productivity since 1880. It is the first comprehensive inventory of agricultural policies and their impact on agricultural production during the colonial era and after independence. It stresses the continuity in the development of both agricultural productivity and policies from the colonial era until today.
