Excerpt from The Achehnese, Vol. 1

In July, 1891, I proceeded to Acheh in pursuance of instructions from the netherlands-india Government to make a special study Of the religious element in the political conditions of that country. During a residence in Arabia (1884 - 85) I had been in a position especially at Mecca to obtain an intimate knowledge of the in uence of Mohammedan fanaticism upon the obstinate resistance of the Achehnese to Dutch rule; some time Spent in direct relations with Achehnese on their own soil was required to round Off the knowledge gained by me from literature and from my experience in the sacred city of the Arabs.

In Acheh I soon saw that the available data regarding the language, country and people fell far short of what was wanted, so I extended my enquiry beyonds the limits of my commission. In order to get at the very foundations Of a knowledge Of the in uence of Islam upon the political, social and domestic life of the Achehnese, I took (so far as local conditions allowed me) that life in its entire range as the subject of my research. In February, 1892, I had got together enough pre liminary matter for compiling a book; I worked up my materials at Batavia; and so, in 1893 - 94, first appeared the treatise which is now being again offered to the public in the form of an English translation.
