Bureaucrats, Petty Bourgeois and Townsmen: An Observation on Status Identification in Kota Bharu
Halim Hj Salleh
The author argues that most anthropologists who have studied Kelantan, prior to this work, were infected by a colonial mindset that focused on capital acquisition rather than more traditional signs of change within the society. Therefore, basing his work on research amongst the inhabitants of a small part of the state's capital city, he seeks to extract other indicators of change and demonstrate their message about how this backwater has been affected since independence. 183 pages.
