Front Cover
Asian Studies Association of Australia, 1993 - Indonesia - 425 pages
When the Dutch East India Company (VOC) intervened in a civil war in Java in 1677, no one knew that 50 years of inconclusive conflict would follow. The VOC brought to Java the technological advances of 17th century European warfare, which the Javanese eagerly adopted. Yet this ready transfer of technology was not accompanied by any significant cultural cringe on the European or Javanese side.
