Writer: Bambang Purwoko
The articles in this book were published in the People’s Sovereignty Decree for the 2002-2005 period, covering actual issues from the local to the national level during which time major changes in the socio-political field took place, especially regarding the transition to a stable democracy. Through his analysis, Purwoko also discusses the dynamics of local politics and the culture of the people of Yogyakarta through aspects of political communication that originate from the local political culture by presenting cultural symbols such as the use of the terms pasemon, esem, and sasmita.
