Praemodya was imprisoned by both the Dutch for his role in the Indonesian revolution and by the Indonesian government as a political prisoner, and these novels - which arose from the stories the author told to other prisoners during his imprisonment on Buru Island from 1965-1979 - were banned in Indonesia. Translated and with an introduction by Max Lane. Glossary. 474 pp. ISBN: 0-14-0256342.
