Padi Landscapes of Malaya
(Volumes 6 & 10 of the Malayan Journal of Tropical Geography)
The two surveys arose out a response to worries about declining padi (rice) cultivation at a time when other cash crops, such as rubber and oil palm, were becoming more attracive to cultivators. The purpose of the studies was to determine who worked the fields and how. Because it was felt the first report was a bit rushed, a second more intensive survey,covering more varied rice growing areas, was undertaken.Vol 6 94 pages of text followed by 57 pages of an atlas of the fields covered. Vol 10 143 pages with numerous tables.
