Edyta Roszko’s book is perhaps the first that examines such complex and tension-laden relation as experienced, mediated, challenged and tactically manoeuvred around by a rarely documented protagonist: fishers. This book is a rich and engaging ethnography of two fishing communities in central Vietnam, who have been steering a challenging but creative course in a triadic relationship with the state and religious authorities.

‘”On the whole, the book is a rich ethnographic account of the Indonesian migration regime particularly, unveiling the experience of migration by grasping migrant women’s aspirations and their distinct orientation towards future. The author has very carefully documented the narratives that contribute to a more nuanced understanding of the multi-layered process of migration. The book is an interesting reading and will be of immense interest for scholars working on gender and labour issues.”

Through what lens do we come to understand a country, its people, cities and politics over time – and how does that country see itself? In this fascinating study, Friederike Trotier uses international multi-sports events from the 1962 Asian Games to the 2018 Asian Games to shine a light on Indonesia’s transformation and the multiple entanglements that has constituted that transformation.

“For too long sport has largely been ignored by historians and social scientists working on Indonesia. Trotier’s book is a turning point. Her careful analysis places big sport events in the context of processes of nation building and city branding, and their political downside. A landmark publication.”

This important book shows how the prestige and pitfalls of hosting major multi-sport events in Indonesia are no longer restricted to the nation’s capital, Jakarta, but since 1998 have extended to the unlikely “sports city” of Palembang, South Sumatra. Trotier unpacks how these sports events – notably the Southeast Asian and Asian Games – have both shaped and reflected national politics, decentralization, and the “turn to the civic” in post-Suharto Indonesia, offering a rich, original, and highly interdisciplinary contribution to Asian studies, sports studies, and urban geography.

“Legacies of international sporting events taken place in the Global South are still the uncharted territory in the field of sport and area studies. Dr Friederike Trotier boldly took this pioneering role and thoroughly examined the political and developmental impact of a series of international sporting occasions held in Indonesia. This book is surely a distinctive academic achievement.”

“This book is a welcome addition to the research on nuns and women in Buddhism. It is an important contribution for the study of material religion, gender and Buddhism, and Thai and Southeast Asian studies, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels.”
