Preview

The changes sweeping the Tengger highlands have had an impact beyond property, labor, and protection. Consumption is also changing, in a manner that reveals with unusual clarity the altered bases of identity and community. This chapter discusses the family, household, and the domestic cycle in rural Java; education and stratification; employment outside the village; and recent shifts in conspicuous consumption.
