ABSTRACT
The article discusses the book "Nationalism and Revolution in Indonesia," by George M. Kahin. The book focuses on the revolutionary tide in Southeast Asia. Although conditions of life have improved since the turn of the century, larger contacts with the outside world and increased mechanization of production have made for a sense of oppression. To cheapen the civil service and non-manual operations in trade and industry, the colonial government brought back to life the very indigenous middle class, which for centuries had been at pains. The role played by modern Islamic teaching in the forging of national unity has rarely been so well documented.
