Ulbe Bosma, Remco Raben. Most of colonial society, up to the highest levels, consisted of people of mixed Dutch and Asian descent who were born in the Indies and considered it their home, but were legally Dutch. They played a major role in the plantation industry, commerce, local government and even early anti-colonial nationalism.

In Being Dutch in the Indies, Ulbe Bosma and Remco Raben transpose the issue of Dutch identity to the In-dische world, a chain of strongly localized European communities whose members grew up within the Dutch empire in the East Indies, to explore the relationship be-tween creolisation and colonialism from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries.

Being "Dutch" in the Indies portrays Dutch colonial territories in Asia not as mere societies under foreign occupation but rather as a "Creole empire. In telling the story of the Creole empire, the authors draw on government archives, newspapers, and literary works as well as genealogical studies that follow the fortunes of individual families over several generations. They also critically analyze theories relating to culturally and racially mixed communities

This book reads like a doctoral dissertation briefly reworked for publication. The information it presents is very thorough, with the same general ideas repeated to show awareness of instance after instance of creolisation in the Indies during the Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch periods of hegemony. The same patterns are documented in each island grouping and distinctions are drawn among various ethnic groups, including chinese asians, indians, molluccans, etc. There is much less history of 'empire' than I had hoped for; indeed this was my primary reason for purchasing the book. I picked up some interesting information about the economic possibilities for locally-born members of European families (not as good as one might expect) and how the Dutch East India Company (VOC) ran economic life in the colony. The final chapter gives a good overview of how western material culture took hold in the islands in the early twentieth century, even down to the intense interest shown in American movies, automobiles and household appliances.

I would have appreciated more attention paid to the earliest years of Dutch settlement in Indonesia--only 2 chapters really focus on that time period. The writing is very formal and grad-student like. I got some good information, but it wasn't exactly what I expected.
