"A remarkably interesting account of Indonesian agricultural history, primarily covering the period of Dutch control, from 1619 to 1942. Drawing on ecology, sociology, and economics, Geertz...provides an insightful and persuasive analysis."—The Annals
"If colonial geography ever succeeds in establishing itself as a discrete and integral focus of inquiry, it may well date its majority to the publication of Agricultural Involution."—Geographical Record
"A brilliant and superbly written study...an incisive, even frightening description of the most crucial dilemma in contemporary Indonesia."—Agricultural History
"A valuable and important study...in which source materials from history, economics, soil science, geography and other fields are brilliantly marshalled and interrelated. But besides being an exemplary study in the interaction of history, physical environment and agricultural technology, this book represents a watershed between narrowly conceived ethnographies and the flood of verbose and ill digested post-war 'technology-and-social-change' monographs that are wont to aim high and hit wide...A model of comparative analytical writing."—Man
"Agricultural Involution: The Processes of Ecological Change in Indonesia" Reviews
focus on materiality of farming practices
development of dual economy - labor-intensive and capital-intensive split
the swidden and imitation of nature vs the sawah and the domestication of nature
toward in-between anthropogenic natures, an anthropogenic that works with nature, that imitates nature
on human inefficiency and directed goals (clear-cutting and controlled burn)
the green desert
involution - change without change, instead of revolution an infolding, the progressive elaboration of a kind of baroque ecology (...) that redevelops itself over and over by necessity
