Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this story, an Indonesian rebellion against the Dutch colonial authorities in 1828 is chronicled. Two main characters' activities are followed. Both are of mixed Indonesian/Dutch heritage, and are officers in the Dutch army forces in Indonesia. One favors giving more autonomy to the Indonesian people, and the other wholly identifies with the colonial occupiers of his country. When an uprising begins in a village, it does not spread very far before it is brutally suppressed
