Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Dewey's effort in this source is to "show…the functional
interrelationship between patterns of trade and the social and economic patterns of peasant
society." (p. xix) Her research was conducted in the town market of Modjokuto (a
pseudonym), and her data regarding the marketing operations there are presented in the
context of the character of internal markets in peasant economic systems, the influence of
social factors on economic structure, patterns of exchange and types of traders, finance,
small- and large-scale trade, trade in garden products and other foods, artisans in the
market place, and the sale of manufactured and processed goods. An historical overview of
marketing in Java is presented, as well as appendices illustrating volume of market trade
and a trader's sales and purchases.
