This is a revised and updated collection of papers from a 1989 conference on the nature of the 'village' in Southeast Asia. The contributors argue that the concept of the village was largely a colonial construct designed to facilitate administration by the new arrivals. The book also looks at the situation in post colonial Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand where again the new concept of village was transformed by market led economies to fit in with newly emerging capitalist markets. xviii & 229 pages.
