Nationalism in the Dutch East Indies

 

 

The latest podcast episode continues our narrative on Southeast Asia in the early twentieth century, by looking at Indonesia, then called the Dutch East Indies, from 1901 to 1941 (A.D.).  First we will learn how oil was discovered in the islands, and how it replaced spices as Indonesia’s most important product.  Then we will see how the Dutch administered the islands during that time.  Finally we will follow the development of Indonesian nationalism, and meet Sukarno, the first leader of modern Indonesia.
