This source contains information on power and status in

relation to changes in the administrative and economic field” (p. 10). Information is
presented on the Javanese Regents; status and kinship among the Javanese nobility; regents
and wives; maternal status, kinship, and appointments; poverty and honor; nobility and
officials; Javanese-Chinese relationships; the Provisional Regional People’s Assembly;
informal relationships among officials; the public recognition of status; and the
transmission of power. The author concludes that systems of status have changed.
