About this Item: White Lotus, 2010. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 333 p. Includes: illustrations, maps, bibliography. This book gives voice to the Malays of southern Thailand by offering readers a rich and original corpus of their oral literature. The storyteller Wo Seng is the guardian of the Malay oral tradition. It is thanks to him that the Great South (Patani. Yala. Nantthiwat) has been able to preserve an identity free of the influence of communists, separatists, fundamentalists that ensured a privileged relationship with the supernatural and sacred world. If this identity, as expressed in rice rituals, paintings on the hulls of boats and the performances and representations of sacred theatres, were to be abandoned as a result of seduction by political discourses and preconceived ideas, the reality of a complex and culturally rich ground might be lost in history. These people of the south, although largely misunderstood or ignored by the outside world, have nevertheless always been able to adapt themselves to the surrounding Chinese and Buddhist world. It is only by trying to decipher the ideological foundations of the culture of the Malay inhabitants of southern Thailand that one can envisage the possibility of one day putting an end to the acute tensions they now suffer. The second volume of this work will place the oral literature presented here into its political, sociological and economic context, giving readers a better understanding of the cultural roots of a people who live together in harmony. rather than in contradiction to a world imposed on them from the outside. 0.0.

About this Item: White Lotus, Bangkok, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. First edition. New. Ivanoff, an experienced anthropologist in Burma and Thailand, in this 333 page book introduces us to the oral literature of the Malay population of the provinces of Patani, Yala and Narathiwat in Southern Thailand. He sets out to show that much of the Malay discontent in this area stems from a need to re-discover their spiritual values as an antidote to "the restrictive dogma of Islam" and their own restrictive traditions. The exposition of his thesis is broken up into four parts, namely 1 - Epic Literature in Peninsular Thailand: a Coveted Isthmus, 2 - Myths and Epics, 3 - The Cycle of Hawe & 4 - Mythical Detours. There is also an extensive bibliography, many balck and white illustrations and three Appendices. Weight: 0.7kg. Post free within Malaysia. Seller Inventory # TH6
