The majority of literature on the economic crisis in Indonesia has focused on the negative macroeconomic impact during the “crisis years” of 1997–99. The case studies presented in this volume take on a different perspective, analyzing a variety of responses to the crisis among communities and households from different areas of Indonesia, and covering the coping and adapting mechanisms of rural households in particular, under a variety of resource-use practices and regulations.
