Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the 2011 Harry J. Benda Book Prize from the Association for Asian Studies.

"Both elegantly written and meticulously researched, Muslims and Matriarchs presents a rich and compelling political history of a fascinating society as it negotiates the dynamics of Islamic reform, Dutch colonialism, and Indonesian nationalism. Jeffrey Hadler guides readers through nearly two centuries of complex discourses bearing on houses, families, women, and men―as well as ritual, piety, education and authority―that are variously Minangkabau, Islamic, and European. The result is an extremely valuable and eminently rewarding addition to our knowledge of the dynamics of cultural transformation and resilience in Southeast Asia and beyond."―Michael G. Peletz, Emory University



"For well over a hundred years, the Minangkabau region of Sumatra, distinguished both by its matrilineal society and its contribution to the growth of nationalism, has attracted attention from scholars of Indonesia. Jeffrey Hadler draws upon several caches of unused sources, including handwritten essays by young educated Minangkabau, to provide greater historical depth to our understanding of the relationship between culture, region, and nation in modern Indonesia. In so doing, he places new information within a refreshing and original framework."―Barbara Watson Andaya, University of Hawai'i



"Muslims and Matriarchs is deeply and creatively researched, well written, and tells a complex story that is also a compelling argument. Jeffrey Hadler's scholarship is authoritative."―James Rush, Arizona State University



"The text can be seen as a dialogue with the divergent types of studies on Minangkabau written by foreign and local-born scholars as well as by Minangkabau literati. Hardly any important topic is left out and hardly any significant and related event is left untouched. Muslims and Matriarchs is one of the most thought-provoking books ever written on Minangkabau, and perhaps also on Indonesia as a whole. It is certainly one of the best written in the last two decades."―Taufik Abdullah
