Historical Context of the Relationship Between East Javanese Intellectuals and the Political Elite

  • Airlangga Pribadi Kusman
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the historical context of the ties between national and local intellectuals with the alliance of the politico-business elite in the era of Soeharto regime. This chapter will show how the Soeharto regime cuts off intellectuals from their social basis and immediately afterwards makes them dependent on the State apparatus by positioning them into an integral part of the mass depoliticisation strategy. This chapter explains that the mass depoliticisation process developed by the New Order regime in a massive and excessive way has a powerful influence that keeps the intellectuals apart from being separated from their social base and also makes them have little choice but to build alliances with the dominant elite forces in order to obtain incentives material as well as gaining a respectable social status.
