Meijer, J., 1993, In : Itinerario. 17, 2, p. 53-73 21 p.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Cartoons in Dutch newspapers and magazines in the decade after the Indonesian decolonisation until the end of the New Guinea dispute in 1962 illustrate the deteriorating relationship between the Netherlands and its former colony from Dutch perspective in all its different shades. They represent the Dutch difficulty to accept emotionally that Indonesia is an independent country entitled to follow its own course.
