De Japanse bezetting van Indonesië in vergelijking met de Duitse bezetting van Nederland tijdens WO II


  • Lammers,C. J.


After World War Two many Dutchmen perceived the Japanese occupation of 'their' Dutch East Indies in the light of their own experience with German rule during 1940-1945. In how far and in what respects were the two occupations similar? In this paper an analysis is presented of the ways in which the occupant in both cases utilized negative sanctions, could depend on certain sources of authority, and saw fit to manipulate various autochthonous elites with positive sanctions. Such a comparison makes sense not only in view of its historical and actual political significance, but also as a contribution to the development of a sociology of occupation of conquered territories.
