This important comparative study views the separatist movements in the Philippines and Thailand as both political phenomena and springing from dissatisfied ethnic minorities. The author questions "Modernization school" and Marxist belief that ethnicity is a transitory phenomenon, arguing that that concept of "national culture" may result in minority groups remaining outside the culture. Examining the form and development of these resistance struggles, this study investigates their structure, leadership, and ideology, and highlights the role of Islam in shaping and sustaining the movements.
