About this book

Because their legal access and customary rights to the forest have been severely limited, the peasants have been pushed toward illegal use of forest resources. As a result a complex political situation has developed in Java over three hundred years.
`Rich Forests, Poor People combines the intimacy of field-based microstudies of central Javanese villages with a historical narrative that has much to tell us about the institutional roots of the modern Indonesian states.' Journal of Asian Studies
