Abstract

This paper deals with the historical roots and identities, nature and characteristics of local strongmen groups in Indonesia, and aspects of violence in Indonesia. In the rural colonial Java, there were rampok-bandits and jago groups; whereas today in Banten there are jawara groups and elsewhere in Indonesia people commonly recognized preman groups. In this paper I will focus on these four groups: rampok-bandits (or bandits), jago, jawara, and preman. These groups are parts of the long-established strongmen groups that have characterized Indonesian history. Among the questions addressed are: what is the origin and what are the characteristics of local strongmen groups in society? How does violence embody in the way of life of local strongmen groups? What is their position in society? How do they characterize local cultures in their place of origin? Keywords: Rampok-bandits, Jago, Jawara, Preman, Violence

According to Lynn Schofield Clark, the study of interraction process between religion and popular culture involves a number of crucial questions: How is religion represented and understood in the landcape of popular culture? How are popular culture aspects adopted by religion as tools to strengthen peoples identities? How do certain religious groups use popular culture as a source or a way to reflect and discuss the perspectives and practices of their religious life? How are religious traditions well-transmitted to the youth through stories, pictures, sounds and rituals? Keywords: Punk, Muslims, Religious Identities, Modernity, Popular, Culture

Abstract

This paper focuses on the history of spice trade in Moluccas. Using two main approaches of firstly, Braudel, I intend to examine the histoty of spice trade in Moluccas in the 16th century in relation with the changing of the structure of economy that affected the social and political relations of the Moluccans. Secondly, applying Wallerstein approaches, I find out that trading activities from the 16th century until today have created a wide gap between post-colonial Moluccas and the Europeans. To conclude, I argue that economic activities have always been accompanied by forcing political power, such as monopoly and military power. Consequently, they have created unequal relations between the state and society.Keywords: Moluccas, Spice, Braudel, Wallerstein, State-society Relations
