Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This source “proposes to account for the character of
authority exercized in” the sub-district office “by considering its relations to the social
structure, and in particular the system of social stratification of the middle-sized
community in Java in which it is located” (introductory p. ii-iii). The author collected
his data through participant observation, informal interviewing, and archival research in
Modjokuto as a member of the Harvard Indonesian project. While the dissertation does
include some general descriptive materials on Modjokuto and on Indonesian government and
social stratification in general, most of the work centers on authority relationships
involving members of the sub-district office located in Modjokuto. Some pages have been
retyped by HRAF because of the illegibility of the originals. The reproduction quality of
the copy used is generally poor.
