Fishermen of South Thailand:

The Malay Villagers

by

Thomas M. Fraser

This study of a Malay, outwardly Muslim, community not only looks at the close connection between fishing and the structure of village life, but also at how the community was adapting to the beginnings of change in the mid 20th century. Woven into this study also are observations as to how the community adapts Islam to its animist sub-culture and how that combination copes at the edge of a Buddhist Thailand. Very Good Paperback. First Edition 110 pages with chapters on

  • 2 - Making a Living,
  • 3 - The Web of Life,
