Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This monograph presents a study of Javanese culture history
and ethnography from approximately 1815-1990. Of particular interest in this document is
the author's description of the differences between the cultures of the peasant population
in the rural village communities and that of the intelligentsia in civil servant
occupations in the more urban environments. Additional topics in this work include
information on population, religion, social organization, the economic system, and
language. The final chapter of this study, largely theoretical in nature, presents
information on the Javanese symbolic system and value orientation. An extensive
bibliography will be found at the end of this work.
