Minke is a young Javanese student of great intelligence and ambition. Living equally among the colonists and colonized of 19th-century Java, he battles against the confines of colonial strictures. It is his love for Annelies that enables him to find the strength to embrace his world.



Bumi Manusia remains one of the most important read on postcolonialism, and the life during the colonization of ‘Dutch East Indies’.
