Max Havelaar or, the coffee auctions of the Dutch Trading Company


A brilliantly inventive fiction that is also a work of burning political outrage, Max Havelaar tells the story of a renegade Dutch colonial administratorís ultimately unavailing struggle to end the exploitation of the Indonesian peasantry. Havelaarís impassioned exposť is framed by the fatuous reflections of an Amsterdam coffee trader, Drystubble, into whose hands it has fallen. Thus a tale of the jungles and villages of Indonesia is interknit with one of the houses and warehouses of bourgeois Amsterdam where the tidy profits from faraway brutality not only accrue but are counted as a sign of Godís grace.
