About this product
- DescriptionThis remarkable study of urban society in one of Indonesia's main cities explores the experiences of the people who occupy its alleyways, riverbanks and muddy roadsides. Its rich ethnographic detail describes how kampung residents have survived in the shadow of tumultuous economic growth and political reform while contesting government controls.
- Author BiographyRobbie Peters is an anthropologist and director of the Development Studies Program at the University of Sydney, Australia. He has written journal articles on the political economy of violence, urban renewal and migration in the Indonesian city, as well as gender, migration and value in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. His current research interest focuses on what he calls the shift from the mobilisation of people to the mobility of people as an economic development strategy in Southeast Asia, with an emphasis on its major cities.
