Previous studies of the Indonesian Chinese have failed to address their role as a commercial bourgeoisie. This study fills that gap by focusing directly on Chinese business roles and the emergence of partnerships between Chinese businessmen and Indonesian revolutionaries.

Review:

`Twang is the first to make extensive use of a wide range of published, sem-published and archival materials from British, Dutch, Japanese, Indonesian and Singaporese origin in Chinese, English, Dutch and Japanese. Several historiographers of Indonesia believe that the lack of sources and/or
the disparate nature of the sources impedes reconstruction of events in the 1940s. Twang proves them wrong.'
Pierre Van Der Eng, Business History, Oct.00.

`Of relevance to business historians are various sections in which Twang discusses the characteristics of the organisation of Chinese businesses: flexibility, networks and informality.'
Pierre Van Der Eng, Business History, Oct.00.
