  • Product Description
 

For many decades, the history of Bangka was not a major concern of the Dutch Indies and Indonesian postcolonial history in general. This is because neither Dutch Colonial nor Indonesian postcolonial governments saw Bangka as one of their political and military priorities. In term of architecture, the history and identity of Indonesian colonial and postcolonial architecture and urban perspectives is mostly understood through the geo-political conditions particular to Java, a fact which denies the specific characteristics of the Outer Islands. Therefore, this book extends Indonesian colonial and postcolonial studies outside of Java, and take particular topic of the relationship between Indonesian tin mining activities and their historical representation in architecture and urbanism. This book investigates the operation of power in the construction of identity and stands as a comprehensive novel of architecture and urban history of tin-mining in Bangka island, particularly with regard to socio-political phenomena. This book is therefore the first comprehensive study of Indonesian regional architecture and urbanism to deal with such a topic.
