Duit, jodoh, dukun: Remarks on cultural change among poor migrants to Bandung

By M.M. van Bruinessen


If one would wish to single out, among the many interrelated processes of social,\ud economic and cultural transformation in the Third World, one factor as the most central,\ud the migration of increasing numbers of people from villages and towns to large urban\ud centres would be a likely candidate. Almost all other important processes of change are\ud directly related to this rural-to-urban migration, some of them primarily as causes or\ud contributing factors (population growth, modernization of agriculture and the\ud accompanying economic polarization), others mainly as effects (the growth of urban\ud slums, the rapid expansion of an “informal sector” in the economy, mass political\ud participation and the emergence of new types of political movements)
