Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the unspoken link between nationalists and journalists in the 1930s and serves two purposes. One is to reveal the instrumental relation between newspapers and political associations. The chapter illustrates the changing circumstances in politics and the media that gave rise to commercial journalism. It discusses the expansion of the Malay print market in the late 1920s and the 1930s, with particular emphasis on the peranakan Chinese who were dominant in newspaper business. The second purpose is to deconstruct the conventional categorization of the Chinese. This categorization is made to draw broad outlines of the politically diverse Indies Chinese; but it has become rather imposing in the sense that it obscures precisely the multiplicity it tried to capture. In the 1930s, the more peranakan debated about the status of the Chinese, the more they were detached from Indonesian nationalist discourse.

Keywords:Indonesian History; journalism; Malay print market; newspaper market; peranakan Chinese
