Birth Rituals and Contested Indentities among Laujé of Indonesia
Anthropologists have tended to see Indonesian communities as living in Outer Indonesia, where society is patriarchal and influenced by Islam and Hinduism,in Inner Indonesia, among hill tribes with a more egalitarian structure and in more multi ethnic societies in the the coastal areas. In this study of the Laujé people of Sulawesi, who live in all three areas, the author demonstrates that community identity is often fluid against such a backdrop. 308 pages For further details, please see the scanned contents page
