'Max Havelaar, of de koffij-veilingen der Nederlandsche Handel-Maatschappij' ('Max Havelaar: Or the Coffee Auctions of the Dutch Trading Company', 1860) by Multatuli aka Eduard Douwes Dekker. It's a book known by all Dutch speakers, as a criticism of Dutch colonial policy in the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia). However, it is the candid use of language by Multatuli that impresses truly. And of course, the descriptions of the culture in societies of Java and Sumatra.
