It offers the government a way of re-thinking their social policy to the indigenous community, mainly to those who live in the countryside.From the mid – 19th century the Samin people have made a contribution to resistance to Dutch colonial rule in rural Java by their non-violence movement and passive resistance (lijdelijk verset).

History also notes that they have a unique culture and system of values which reflect their own local wisdom. However, many negative rumours have become widespread regarding this community. This book explores the marriage practices in Samin society and finds out how Samin society gives meaning to these marriage practices.

It examines whether the practice of ‘virginity tests’ and ‘stray marriages’ exist in contemporary Samin society. To know the actual marriage practices of the Samin Klopoduwur, the author during his research used a feminist ethnography approach. Reading this book, the author invites us to enter this community and to look up many interesting aspects, such as their cultures, beliefs, customs and local wisdoms.============================================Originally presented as the authors thesis (M.A.)--University of New England, 2009.Rumours and realities of marriage practices in contemporary Samin society, a study of the Samin people of Klopoduwur, Blora, Central Java--Cover.
