9789744801289: Culture and Development in Southeast Asia

This book is a collection of papers presenting new field research undertaken throughout the region by the respective authors. Five of the chapters report original findings from ethnic groups found in Thailand, including the Lahu, the Lue, the Palaung, the Thai and black Tai. Further chapters address the Toraya of Sulawesi, Indonesia; the Kalinga of Luzon, the Philippines; the Giay, Hmong and Dao of Lao Cai Province, Vietnam; and Nung Phan Slinh of Lang Son Province, Vietnam. The central organizing theme of the volume is the convergence and ineraction of culture and socio-economic development. The process of development is treated as enmeshed in culture, and vice-versa, cultural change is explored in a context of market forces, state policy, and development programs influencing the formation, maintenance, and transformation of ethnic identities. Sub-themes broached include the engagement (and impingement) of regional, national, and global cross-currents on local populations; issues of national identity, ideology and the integration of groups into larger nations; and how these identities are articulated and shaped by public, academic, and political discourse.

Book Description White Lotus., Bangkok., 2008. Maps, xi + 254 pages, notes, bibliography, colour photographic plates, index, paperback. Culture and Development in Southeast Asia is a collection of papers based on original field research taken by the individual authors in the region of Southeast Asia. Five of the chapters in this volume report findings from researches carried out among different ethnic groups in Thailand, including: Lahu, Lue, Palaung, Thai and Black Tai. The remaining chapters are based on research among: Toraya of Sulawesi, Indonesia; Kalinga of Luzon, the Philippines; Giay, Hmong, and Dao of Lao Cai Province, Vietnam; and Nung Phan Slinh of Lang Son Province, Vietnam. The central organizing theme of the volume is, of course, "culture and development;" not as isolated and separate concepts or phenomena, but rather convergence and interaction. In other words, how development is enmeshed with and by the cultural, and vice versa. There are also several sub- themes that run throughout the volume's constituent chapters. These sub-themes include : how larger regional, national, and global currents engage with and impinge upon local realities; issues of nationalism, national identities and the integration of diverse groups into larger national communities; how identity is shaped by public, academic, political, and development discourse and how various agents, such as, market forces, state policy, and development programs bear upon the formation, maintenance, and transformation of ethnic identities.
