How do the peoples of the remotest countrysides accept strong influences of modernization and development policy as well as the global processes of capitalist development? Political Culture and Ethnicity focuses on the anthropology of politics in Southeast Asia. The study clarifies present situations of local level politics from a social anthropological point of view The case studies presented in this book are an attempt to examine the variable ways in which global processes of the formation of nation-states draw the peoples of Southeast Asia into local politics. Problems discussed here include relations of customary law to national law; processes of resolving conflicts and disputes; questions of land tenure; development policies and local adaptation to them; discourses of political culture; formation of ethnic identity and interethnic relation. These studies will contribute much to the deeper understanding of local level politics and political cultures in Southeast Asia. --- from book's back cover
