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

Kehadiran roman sejarah ini bukan saja dimaksudkan untuk mengisi sebuah episode berbangsa yang berada di titik persalinan yang pelik dan menentukan namun juga mengisi isu kesusastraan yang sangat minim menggarap periode pelik ini Karena itu hadirnya roman ini memberi bacaan alternatif kepada kita untuk melihat jalan dan gelombang sejarah secara lain dan dari sisinya yang berbeda. 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
