Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. Through the impact on individual families, it depicts the colonial situation in Indonesia and the east Asian context brilliantly. In this West-centric world this is an essential read for a more balanced and enlightened perspective.

Format: Paperback
I want to correct a serious error in the last sentence of the first review posted on this page. It says that Toer's books "are banned in his native MALAYSIA." This is not the correct country. Toer is a native of INDONESIA, and the Buru quartet chronicles the emotional, political and social emergence of that nation. I met the author when I had the opportunity to translate for him during his trip to the US in 1999 -- I strongly feel that he would want people to know that his country is Indonesia!

Format: Paperback
Pramoedya's ability to illustrate the conflicts among the pure Javanese natives, half-breed Indos, and the Dutch colonialist masters is nothing short of phenomenal. The rights of the natives proved to be meaningless when it came face to face against the greeds of the colonial masters.
