Eleven weeks after Diponegoro’s detention on March 28, 1830, in Magelang, every conversation with Pangeran Diponegoro was recorded by three Dutch military officers assigned to escort his journey into exile in Sulawesi. The fourth conversation, which is much shorter, was written by the youngest son of the Dutch Crown Prince, who was later appointed King of the Netherlands, Willem II, and Prince Hendrik. This book Percakapan dengan Diponegoro examines all the conversations. Written frankly and charmingly, it is, for the first time, translated into Indonesian and historical context. As an important source for any biography of Pangeran Diponegoro, these records open with a biographical essay that explores the position of the “outsiders inside” the four officers conversing with the Prince.

Sebelas minggu setelah penahanan Diponegoro pada tanggal 28 Maret 1830 di Magelang, setiap percakapan dengan Pangeran Diponegoro direkam oleh tiga perwira militer Belanda yang ditugaskan untuk mengawal perjalanannya ke pengasingan di Sulawesi. Percakapan keempat, yang jauh lebih pendek, ditulis oleh yang anak termuda dari Putra Mahkota Belanda, yang kemudian diangkat menjadi Raja Belanda Willem II dan Pangeran Hendrik. Buku Percakapan dengan Diponegoro ini mengupas semua percakapan tersebut. Ditulis dengan lugas dan apik, pertama kali diterjemahkan ke dalam Bahasa Indonesia dan sejarah. Sebagai sumber penting bagi setiap biografi Pangeran Diponegoro, catatan-catatan ini dibuka dengan esai biografis yang mengeksplorasi posisi “orang luar di dalam” empat perwira yang berbicara dengan Sang Pangeran.
