Chapter Summary

This chapter looks at fundamental transitions in Indonesian society from various angles and different disciplines and show that Chinese Indonesians are a diverse and socially active group, whose histories and agencies are heterogeneous and locally embedded and cannot be homogenized in a singular framework. It shows how Chinese Indonesians played an active role in shaping society during regime changes, and found creative and constructive ways to deal with situations of adversity and crisis. The chapter demonstrates that regime changes, throughout Indonesian history, did not only pose threats of violence, but also offered chances and opportunities that induced agency on the part of Chinese Indonesians to shape their destinies and that of the country.
