Chapter Summary

The high profits which the trade in spices promised to those who could gain control of their production and distribution in the Maluku Archipelago were an irresistible lure to traders from the West. In the era of their Golden Age the Dutch Republic was one of the most powerful trading nations in the world, not least because of the crucial contribution to the national economy made by the Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie (VOC). Prince Nukus extraordinary achievement in unifying so many of the disparate groups of Malukans during his long struggle was seen as confirmation of the idea that the royal house was blessed with a special gift. Nuku was one of the rebels who did not finally surrender, nor was he defeated or arrested as Dipanegara was.
