Item description for The Political Economy of Java's Northeast Coast, c. 1740-1800 (TANAP Monographs on the History of Asian-European Interaction) by Kwee Hui Kian & Hui Kian Kwee...
This book is a study of the political economy of Java's Northeast Coast from 1743, when the VOC emerged as its ruler, until the end of the eighteenth century. The focus is on the various power-holders - namely coastal Javanese regents, Mataram rulers, Chinese merchants and Company authorities - and how they accommodated the changes brought about with the power shift, what their primary resources were and how they tried to maximize their advantages in the new politico-economic setting. This study also shows how the Company, despite being the ruler, had to compromise with these power-holders and satisfy their needs to optimize its gains.
