Juggling Money: Financial Self-help Organizations And Social Security in Yogyakarta (Verhandelingen Van Het Koninklijk Instituut Voor Taal-, Land)
Hotze LontISBN: 9067182400;
This social-anthropological study, focusing on urban Indonesia, examines a variety of financial self-help organizations as instruments for dealing with financial difficulties related to illness, death, and unemployment. The author devotes attention to the embedding of these associations, and their participants, in a changing socio-economic and cultural environment, and to the issues of agency, exclusion, trust, and social conflict. The book not only explains the workings of these collective arrangements, but also provides a window on living conditions and social relations in an Indonesian urban community.
