“… this volume covers such an incredible range of material that readers actually can develop an almost encyclopedic understanding of the Japanese occupation period… Since the Japanese period has not been much explored in English-language scholarship on Indonesia, this book is a significant contribution for academic audiences and for others interested in learning more about life on the ground in wartime in a colonial world. This work will be very important for library collections and of immediate use to any university that offers courses in Southeast Asian history and/or social or cultural histories of WW II.” - S. Maxim, University of California, Berkeley (Reviewed in 2010 June CHOICE)
