"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country."

BARNARD, Roger and James McLELLAN, (eds.). Codeswitching in University English-medium Classes : Asian Perspectives. Bristol : Multilingual Matters, (2014). Pp (4),v-xv,(1),1- 224. 8vo, red cardcovers. No.36 in the New Perspectives on Language and Education series. "In the complex, multilingual societies of the 21st century, codeswitching is an everyday occurrence, and yet the use of students' first language in the English language classroom has been consistently discouraged by teachers and educational policy-makers. This volume begins by examining current theoretical work on codeswitching and then proceeds to examine the convergence and divergence between university language teachers' beliefs about codeswitching and their classroom practice. Each chapter investigates the extent of, and motivations for, codeswitching in one or two particular contexts, and the interactive and pedagogical functions for which alternative languages are used. Many teachers, and policy-makers, in schools as well as universities, may rethink existing 'Englishonly' policies in the light of the findings reported in this book."- from rear cover.

(RAFFLES, Stamford, Sir). COUPLAND, Reginald. Raffles of Singapore. London:Collins, 1946. Third Edition. Pp. (4),5-144, frontispiece. Map endpapers. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The life of Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore, is one of those human romances which illumine and enrich the history of the British Empire. His youth was cramped by poverty. At fourteen he was already hard at work to help his invalid mother. But at twenty-four he got his chance and made the most of it. Appointed to a post in the East India Company's service in Malaya, he not only earned quick promotion by his industry and ability but he also acquired an exceptionalknowledge of the Malay people -- their history and language and life. He b ecame deeply attached to them and dreamed of their being rescued some day from anarchy and lawlessness and obtaining peace and justice and prosperity under British protection. This dream seemed to be beginning to materialise when, as an incident of the world-war with Napoleon, he accompanied the expedition which invaded and occupied Java, and was chosen to be its first British governor. Its retrocession to the Dutch at the end of the war was a bitter disappointment, aggravated by domestic bereavement and physical exhaustion. But his spirit was unbroken, and, a few years later, he was given a second chance. Commissioned to find a site for a new British trading-post, he selected Singapore -- then a derelict unknown village, now one of the greatest ports and strategic bases in the world. To-day Singapore and British Malaya are Raffles' dream come true." - from the dustjacket. Very good in nicked, rubbed, unclipped dustjacket. 27.00
