Night School: 'Sama Rata, Sama Rasa'

“I don't write to give joy to readers but to give them a conscience,” wrote Indonesia’s most serious contender for a Nobel prize winner for literature, Pramoedya Ananta Toer. His body of work has survived the New Order regime which sent him into internal exile without trial for close to two decades. Today we look at his work, “The Chinese in Indonesia”, and the underlying re-interpretation of the notion of nation and nationalism.
