Civilizing the Margins:
Southeast Asian Government Policies for Development of Minorities.
Christopher R Duncan (ed)
A fairly common feature of modern governments in Southeast Asia, when dealing with minority ethnic groups, is an attempt to 'civilize' them, though not always so. The contributors here look at a variety of programmes undertaken tin Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam, not only so as to quantify their effects, but also to try and understand the mindset behind the respective policies that underpin these efforts. 284 pages with an index.
