About this title


James R. Rush explains the workings of the opium farm system by measuring the social, economic, and political reach of the opium monopolies within the Dutch-dominated colonial society. Tracing the development and decay of the opium "farm," Rush offers new perspectives on the colonial state that emerged in Indonesia in the early twentieth century, when Holland increasingly subordinated its colonial subjects to bureaucracies of a modern kind.
