Media and Nation Building
How the Iban Became Malaysian
In this unusual, but instructive, study, Postill, an anthropologist looks at the effect of the media in bringing the Iban indigenous peoples of Malaysian Borneo into the embrace of their new home, Malaysia, a state that was constructed in the mid 20th century. What is particularly striking is that, although media has enabled the Iban to identify as Malaysian, it has not completely eradicated their indigenous identity. Near Fine Hardback. First Edition. 231 pages with some black and white plates and an index.
