Communication, Social Structure and Development in Rural Malaysia: A Study of Kampung Kuala Bera

---

William D. Wilder

In this analysis of communication and society in Kampung Kuala Bera, Pahang, Dr. Wilder looks at communication networks of all kinds as found in a long-established Malay village, including the uses of language, small-scale (kinship and village-based) networks, and higher-level systems (the district and the nation as a whole). His field work reflects how these networks functioned  during a period of rapid and induced social change. His study includes the first-ever publication of a Malay village genealogy, a systematic account of birth-order names (a major feature of the kinship system), complete figures on marital breakdowns for the whole village population, and a thorough analysis of leadership in its local context. 234 pages with an index.
