the baser human passions, and was thus a favoured entertainment for Javanese royalty. 2 At celebrations for the Dutch monarchy in the Netherlands East Indies (colonial Indonesia), such courtly dances were frequent at the gala performances sponsored by Dutch officials and Javanese aristocrats during the festivities they were obliged to host. 3 However, the December 1936 performance was the first of its kind at a Dutch court

Indonesian archipelago. It was incorporated into the Netherlands East Indies in 1903 and has been a province of Indonesia since its declaration of independence from the Netherlands in 1945. 2 The prestigious title Sayyid al-Mukammal states the sultan’s claim to being of the same tribe as Muhammad

men missing in other areas in the Far East the position had been reviewed in the light of all available information. Most of those reported as missing in the fighting in Malaya, in the Netherlands East Indies and in Burma before November 1942 had now been reported as prisoners of war either by official notification or through communications received from the men themselves. Because of this level of notification the government was forced to accept that a ‘considerable number’ of those still missing following these campaigns would not still be c03.indd 101 7

The Japanese community of Korea, 1876-1945
Alain Delissen

no farther than in North East Asia, this stands in clear contrast with the Japanese element in Karafuto (97·5) per cent). And if we look at Western empires in South East Asia, the 3 per cent colonists-to-colonised ratio in Korea still compares favourably with the low ones to be found in French Indochina (0·2) per cent), British Malaya (0·7) per cent) or the Netherlands East Indies (0·4) per cent). 10 In short, the Japanese community of Korea happened to be a rather large community, quite uncommon in other colonial empires, but not so

The assailants, two Malay men, were initially thought to have been inspired by conspirators desiring a return to Brooke rule, but recently released official British documents reveal that their intention was to secure Sarawak’s incorporation into the Republic of Indonesia (the former Netherlands East Indies, declared independent by nationalists in 1945) instead of it remaining a British colony. 106 The legacies and memories of the ‘White Rajahs’ continue to run deep, and the Brooke name is

Dutch East Indies also provided the context for the nationalist movement formally to declare Indonesian independence only two days after the Japanese surrender on 15 August 1945. However, as Jean Gelman Taylor shows in her wide-ranging chapter, sultans and rajas had long been central figures in the political and cultural life of three hundred-odd polities wielded together by the Dutch as the Netherlands East Indies. Many retained key roles under the colonial system, both in performing traditional rites and duties, and serving as ‘protected’ vassals who, Europeans

officials were not entirely innocent. Snouck Hurgronje (1857–1936), colonial adviser in the Netherlands East Indies, was quite direct in his advice to the Dutch to involve themselves more deeply in Indies primary education. ‘Our inheritance’, he wrote, ‘consists of the beautiful rich tributary regions held by us by force. But if this claim is to withstand the stormy pressures of the
