Books just delivered

Categories Books, Indonesia

The books I had ordered from Asia Bookroom a while ago were delivered today. The list of them is as follows:

  • Keith Foulcher. Social Commitment in Literature and the Arts: The Indonesian “Institute of People’s Culture” 1950-1965. Clayton: Centre of Southeast Asian Studies, Monash University, 1986. [ISBN: 0-86746-598-0]Social Commitment
  • Harry Aveling (ed., trans.). From Surabaya to Armageddon: Indonesian Short Stories. Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong: Heinemann Educational Books, 1976. [ISBN: n.a.]From Surabaya to Armageddon

I have read the first one, and have its xerox photocopy, but a book fetishist always wants to own an original copy. The second book is compilation of translated cerita pendek. The thrid one is a copy of PKI’s journal, which I don’t know whether I really need or not.

  • Introduction

  2. Hi, Artika. I’m sorry, but now I live in Japan. So it’s hard to give photocopies of them to you, in addition to the copyright problem….
