    The first book in this uartet This Earth of Mankind made me cry The second book Child of All Nations made me cry This third installment of the Buru uartet made me angry Colonization just sucks And when a nation of mixed cultures fight each other while working towards independence freedom if achieved is tainted Footsteps is the biggest of the uartet and the most political From what I understand it is also the last of the first person narrative from Minke's point of view One to go and I really hope that Indonesia gets it together but now in 2009 I know how this earth of mankind stands both politically and culturally and I don't know if Minke would be proud So what is the use of the French Revolution then? and her voice was so gentle as it had always been ever since the first time I heard it You said it was to free men from the burdens made by other men Wasn't that it? That is not Javanese A Javanese does something with no other motive than to do it Orders come from Allah from the gods from the Raja After a Javanese has carried out the order he will feel satisfied because he has become himself And then he waits for the next order So the Javanese are grateful they give thanks They are not preyed upon by monsters within themselvesAlthough nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature Pramoedya Ananta Toer gave up his chance of ever winning when he died Damn it why didn't he wait a little longer before dying?

    This is the third book of the Buru uartet I've read and the 4th novel I've read from the greatest Indonesian author of all time Pramoedya Ananta Toer I've loved reading each and everyone of his novel and never been disapointed He was a great storyteller captivating readers from begining to end The author mixes well between the story of a nation and the individual story of the main character In this 3rd book the main character Minke now an educated young adult returns to his native country after spending years studying and writing short stories in Europe At the beginning of the 20th century he returns to the not yet unified Indonesia and still occupied by Netherland First while he's confident in his future embracing modernism and the new century he hesitates in what he wants to do in his personnal and professional life Then after firt few experience with mild results he throws himself into journalism and creating associations to empower indiginous people against the occupying powers The uartet main theme is struggle against colonialism throught different perspectives The first 2 books were a coming of age of a young teenage educated in a traditional family discovering life outside protection of family the real life and his country In this book Minke is a confirmed man who tries to bring his fellow citizens to grow up from tradional education to a well organized and educated country like several other Asian countries had done prior to them In this book readers discover Indonesia before the country was unified while still under occupation and trying to bring itself together and up into the new century so not to be left behindThis book is a must read book like any book of Pramoedya Ananta Toer I can't wait to buy and read the 4th book of the buru uartet

    Another continuation of the story of Minke this time with politics at the absolute forefront Rather than being the story of a youth in the colonial Indies with political themes always looming over the background Footsteps is a novel all about the struggle Brechtian as hell Rabble is roused I'm not sure whether that helps it can be leadenly didactic at times but it's definitely uite different from the other two volumes although again with the same remarkable use of different languages as different contexts conveying different meanings I still liked it but it didn't sing in uite the same way as volumes 1 and 2 Onto House of Glass

    Another solid Buru novel I read the English translation because I got it in the US before I found the original Indonesian In this novel pergerakan nasional is at its peak and the hero has a roles in Budi Utomo and especially Sarekat Dagang Islam He's painted as a very important pergerakan figure will need to check with history sources to see how much is true But it is very cool to see the novelization of pergerakan struggle the challenge of standing up to the colonial power and educating the Indonesians who at this time received very little education from the government and so on even if it's just the imagination of the author

    Footsteps Jejak Langkah is the third in the Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s Buru uartet the series of four novels tracing Indonesia's 'awakening' that Toer wrote while in prison on the island of Buru See my review of Book 2 for the background to this and also for my thoughts about the translation and introduction which apply eually to this volume Footsteps is a 'political' novel and belongs in that distinctive category of historical fiction as activism that is it's written by authors redressing the hidden stories and silences of colonised peoples in well researched fiction Toer had spent years researching the life of Tirto Adi Suryo who was the inspiration for this uartet but Toer's papers were all destroyed when he was arrested and held without trial for fourteen yearsNotwithstanding that setback Toer created this novel from memory telling the story of a man honoured in 2006 as a National Hero of Indonesia Toer's central character Minke appears to be a reasonably authentic recreation of Tirto's life though the Wikipedia entry in English includes nothing about his personal life which in the uartet so far includes three wives As Max Lane explains in the Introduction Tirto was editor of the first Native owned newspaper and co founder of the first magazine for women; he initiated a legal advisory service; he co founded a modern political organisation devoted to developing what would become Indonesian nationalism; and he was a pioneer of indigenous literature in a language of the nation yet to be born NB My use of terms to describe different ethnic groups and social divisions are those that are used in the book 'Indonesians' would be anachronistic in the era of the Dutch East Indies and Toer uses terms like Native Indo Indisch and regional descriptors such as Javanese Moluccan and Balinese to indicate racial differences while also indicating social differences with terms of address in different languages like Mas Gusti Kanjeng Haji Sinyo Meneer Mevrouw Ndoro Teukoe and Princess Books 1 2 — This Earth of Mankind see here and Child of All Nations see here trace the influences on Minke born into the aristocatic priyani caste and expected to surrender to work as a salaried administrator like his father But these characters show him a different path to take Annalies his first Indo Eurasian wife who died after 'repatriation to the Netherlands because her citizenship was reverted there in order to prevent her inheriting Javanese assets from her Dutch father; Nyai Ontosoroh Annalies' mother and concubine to a failed Dutch businessman whose self taught efforts rescued the business and whose courage and understanding of the modern colonial world alerted Minke to much injustice; See The Girl from the Coast for Toer's representation of what concubinage was like; Jean Marais a French veteran of the war in Aceh who taught Minke to connect with his own people rather than the Dutch at his elite school; Khouw Ah Soe an activist for the progress of Chinese people in Java who was killed by assassins from a Chinese secret society; Thoenodongso a peasant who led an uprising against the colonial sugar barons; Magda Peters his Dutch teacher at the elite HBS school who recognised Minke as a future leader and got herself sent back to Holland because of it; and Herbert de la Croix a liberal Dutch administrator and his two daughters who return to Holland in disillusionment So Footsteps starts in 1901 with Minke at the medical school for Natives This school was a belated initiative by the Dutch in the wake of international embarrassment about their colonial regime but its graduates are condemned to serve only as badly paid doctors attempting to lift the life expectancy of Natives from a shocking 40 years Minke makes few friends but is visited by Ter Haar a liberal Dutch journalist who improves his status at the school by engineering invitations to the Harmoni Club where he meets Van Kollewijn a liberal MP espousing the Ethical Policy aimed at improving the welfare of the Natives; General van Heutsz the man who led the slaughter against the Acehnese; and Marie Van Zeggelen an author who wrote books supportive of Native freedom including a biography of Kartini a pioneer of girls' education who is referenced in Footsteps as 'the girl from Jepara These contacts with powerful people enable Minke to flout school rules with impunity but he ends up abandoning his course to take up journalismFootsteps isn't a book that flows smoothly; Toer was at pains to make various political points and so there are jerky seuences of events and occasionally awkward conversations that are included as activism rather than as part of a credible plot His Native characters are generally convincing than the stereotypes he uses to convey opinions held by colonials or ethnic identities not from the Indies Two topics discussed in an unlikely conversation between a very young Minke and these powerful people are raised at the ironically named Harmoni club Van Kollewjin talks about Holland owing a moral and financial debt to the Indies because exports under the Culture Forced Cultivation System saved Holland from bankruptcy paid for Holland's infrastructure development and provided it with capital for expansion Marie Van Zeggelen tackles General Van Heutsz over his use of the word 'unify' instead of 'expand' to describe the conuest of Aceh He talks of 'pockets' of 'political enclaves' 'destabilising the Indies' and how they must be brought to 'acknowledge the sovereignty of Her Majesty' Ter Haar and Van Zeggelen argue that they are independent states and that the aim of these operations is conuest not unification They ask what his plans are for East Papua and Southeast Papua while sarcastically noting that West Papua is a heavy burden for the Indies uestions of and activism in support of recompense for Holland's moral and financial debt and the territorial integrity of Papua and Aceh under Indonesian sovereignty remain pertinent todayTo read the rest of my review please visit

    Footsteps by Pramoedya Ananta ToerThird book in the Buru uartet Minke who we have followed from a teenager in “This Earth of Mankind” and “Child of All Nations” grows to become a man and a political being in this book This book synthesizes the plot structure and the politics of the first two books and adds on a great historical emphasis to bring these two aspects closely together Though dense at times because of historical reference it is not an unbearable weight but so a corridor with many doors asking to be opened and explored especially for those like me that do not have a good background in Indonesian history Central themes of the book on the political level are; rebellion through modern organization the role of media to unite and legally fight oppression and the conflict of ethical structures between generations due to “modernization” I can’t wait to start the last book in the series; “House of Glass”Some uick favorite uotesMinke describing his role in the modern organization of the Sakerat Dagang Islamiyah which he is using to “advance” his people which is to save his people from being “free slaves” but to do this he must sacrifice part of their heritage“In any case our business is not the past but the present The modern present A time where people calculate what is useful and what is not and discard what is not usefulAnd his and mine a people who have been conuered now for centuries as a people who have lost land and sea as well as ourselves All that is left is our history which we still carry And now I come along and want to steal that too” 377Critiue of modernism“In the modern world everything is specialization People will become alienated from each other People will have cause to meet only because of business or they will meet by accident You will no longer be able to tell if the person you are treating is a good man or not”129

    The third book in the Buru uartet continues the story of Minke and his uest to gain power independence and freedom for he and other Indonesian Natives This book moves away from the first two in that all of the other characters beside Minke are minor But new characters are introduced Minke also moves to a new city a large city and begins to establish a movement to bring greater power and freedom to his own peopleAt its heart this book is a story about a journey It is a journey of a boy turning into a young man and this young man turning into a man All the while his country is also going on a journey with him as one of its surprising leadersI have loved this story I have loved the progress the setbacks the turmoil the friendship and the hatred felt within it It continued to show the immorality of colonialism and the despicableness of racism Above all else it showed the beginnings of human rights for all people regardless of sex age race religion marital status occupation creed or abilities This is something we are still struggling with today Minke is an inspiration that helps me want to continue the fight and help those who can't help themselves

    The third and longest of the Buru uartet on rising Indonesian nationalism in the early years of the 20th century Minke the protagonist drops out of medical school although he was the first native to be admitted in Batavia now Jakarta and returns to political organizing Apart from the suspicion and opposition of the Dutch colonial administration the mixed race populations and traditional native upper classes some of whom thrived under the Dutch even while being coopted he faces the additional challenge of uniting multiple traditional kingdoms comprising myriad ethnicities including immigrant Chinese and language and religious groups many of them poor and illiterate in one nationalist movement across the region’s expansive stretches of island archipelagoes Means of organizing the pros and cons of various political strategies the languages to be used educational strategies publications to spread the word etc are all parts of this challenge Some of this is a bit dry and pedantic but it is also informative and interesting about the difficulties faced in the particular historical circumstances Within these cicrumstances perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the book the plot moves on many fronts with a variety of characters through moments of tension defeats and setbacks and victories and incremental progress At the same time Minke continues to confront personal ordeals in marriage friendships rivalries both friendly and unfriendly physical attacks and threats on his life and finally arrest
