Michael G. Peletz

Peletz discusses the history and ethnography of gender relations in a Malay society in Negeri Sembilan.

He also explains the cultural and political processes implicated in the constitution of feminine and masculine identity. Peletz's study is historical and comparative. A valuable book that presents an interesting model for the analysis of gender and culture. Near Fine Paperback First Edition  402 pages with notes, bibliography and index
