• Pencak Silat in the Indonesian Archipelago

The effort O'ong Maryono has made to compile a book on the development
of pencak silat, is, in itself, commendable.  This integrated presentation provides  for a better and more comprehensive understanding of the various aspects of pencak silat.
As well as discussing the historical aspects  of pencak silat, O'ong Maryono also examines current issues in pencak silat.  In other words, a retrospective and prospective view of pencak silat. I hope that this book will be widely read,  and provide a 'lively' and substantial critical analysis that will improve the quality  of discourse on pencak silat as a whole.

This book is quite unique. Unique in the literal sense: there is no other like it.
It is quite a remarkable fact that although frequent reference is made to pencak silat in various contexts, and it even constitutes a specific type of literature and category of film that relate the heroic stories of its masters, never before has a writer attempted to gather comprehensive information about this 'art of self defence'.


Therefore, this book by O'ong Maryono could  be said to be uncontested. And herein lies its second uniqueness: this encyclopedic book was written not by a graduate in the peace and quiet of his study, but by an expert in silat in the frenzy of the contest arena.
