Kampung, Islam and State in Urban Java
"The book provides rich insights into everyday life in urban kampung Java. Patrick Guinness draws from ethnographic observation and historical research conducted since 1975 to provide an intricately detailed account of urban and generational transformation spanning three decades...[Guinness] skillfully accomplished the more difficult task of slipping seamlessly between decades to compare, contrast and map the processes of change in the lives and livelihoods of kampung residents through thematically organized chapters...This is a valuable resource book for anyone with an interest in community development, urban society and state-societal relations in modern Indonesia. More broadly, it will apeal to those interested in the changing phenomenon of the kampung across a rapidly urbanizing Malay world." - Michelle Ann Miller
