First Edition. In 1873 Dutch plunged precipitately into a war against Atjeh which they were neither strong enough to win by force more flexible enough to win by diplomacy. For the 1st time in English the causes of this protracted war I here examined in detail, primarily on the basis of Dutch and British archival material. The analysis is carried to the end of the century, when the Dutch sealed Atjeh's fate by definitely adopting a policy of force, thereby crossing the threshold to the High Colonels period in Indonesia as a whole. 111114 pp. xiii, 333
