Max Havelaar or the Coffee Auctions of the Dutch Trading Company
by Multatuli Roy Edwards (Translator)
- 337 PAGES
Written under a pseudonym, this book is the powerful story of corruption in colonial Java, a classic first published in 1860 -- and instrumental in bringing about change in the region. Frankly autobiographical, it was written by a former civil servant in Java, none too pleased at his treatment. It's a biting satire, funny and heart-wrenching, with real insight into colonial Indonesia. Read it alongside the novels of Pramoedya Toer, the modern Indonesian writer.
