Hiroyoshi Kano is Professor with the Institute or Oriental Culture at The University of Tokyo. A specialist on Indonesia, Professor Kano has published widely in Japanese and Indonesian on topics related to economic developments in modern Indonesia with a particular emphasis on land and agrarian change.

The Indonesian economy, like the Indonesian nation state, took shape as part of the colonial transformation of the archipelago by the Dutch in the mid-nineteenth century. The agricultural sector of the economy provided food and labor to the export sector, which was firmly incorporated into the world economy through international trade. This economic pattern survived several shifts and persisted even after Indonesia became independent in the mid-twentieth century.
