Description

Titanic Made by Lapindo


by H.M Maksum Zuber

This translation of Maksum’s memoir Titanic Made by Lapindo is the first installment in Lafadl’s Sharing Voices, Sharing Lives series. At Lafadl, we believe bringing Maksum’s voice to the attention of the world represents a crucial step towards realizing the inclusion of marginalized voices into global media and movements for change

Gus Maksum, a scholar, teacher, and one of the thousands of people displaced by the Lapindo mud flow has dedicated himself to educating others about the very real human and environmental impact of this tragedy. Originally published in Indonesian in June 2007, Maksum’s touching first-hand account of the first days and months of the mud flow disaster gives voice to the experience of the women and men known throughout Indonesia as “Lapindo’s mud victims.”

Reviews:

"The author's friends' and relatives' stories, mostly about Javanese villagers' feelings and ideas are touching and well chosen, while the book's translation from Indonesian to English is nearly flawless. The book shows us how villagers tried to make sense of what is happening to them and this is why you should read this book."

"The Lapindo disaster stands among the worst examples of corporate crimes the world has ever witnessed in recent times. The continuing hardship of victim communities struggling amid wretched environmental conditions serves as a powerful reminder of the folly of corporate greed and the disturbing lack of political means to hold responsible companies fully accountable for their misadventures. Gus Maksum's moving narrative shows what happens when the power to permit is not matched by the power to protect the people from the tragic miscalculations of the strong and mighty."

“This book tells us that the suffering of mudflow disaster victims and their mud-swamped village are irreplaceable."
