The 1917 revolutions inspired the popularization and radicalization of the nascent anti-colonial movement in the Indies, which is reflected in the history of the revolutionary press which emerged in the subsequent years until 1926-7. This article recovers the tradition of the revolutionary press and situates it in the history of Indonesian national struggles by examining the production and development of the revolutionary newspaper . An investigation of the paper’s content, production, and distribution practices reveals how not only embodied the anti-colonial national struggle but also became a voice for a project of enlightenment in the colony.
