ABSTRACT

The Social Process of Adaptation in Urban Settlements of Yogyakarta

Perkampungan di Perkotaan Sebagai Wujud Proses Adaptasi Sosial Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta is known as the centre of Javanese civilisation. Although the majority of its population is Muslim, the indigenous Javanese culture still permeates the area’s customs and traditions. This book focuses on the distinctive sociological features of Yogyakarta which stem from the incorporation of villages into the city. The book analyses the process of adaptation of two villages to urban Yogyakarta. 

The readers are invited to learn about the ‘other side’ of urban civilisation. The amalgamation of separate settlements is basically viewed as an effort to build a city. However, the book has paid less attention to the abandonment of previously inhabited areas. 

Methodologically, this book is very technical. The descriptions are quantitative rather than qualitative. The explanations are mostly based on statistical data and do not always take into consideration common observations. 

The detailed explanation and pictures provided make the book particularly useful for policy makers. There are sections which might be of interest to a non-specialised audience such as a section on gossip in Yogyakarta.
