Taylor & Francis, Jan 14, 2004 - Social Science - 376 pages
Ethnic tensions in Southeast Asia represent a clear threat to the future stability of the region. David Brown's clear and systematic study outlines the patterns of ethnic politics in:
* Burma
* Singapore
* Indonesia
* Malaysia
* Thailand
The study considers the influence of the State on the formation of ethnic groups and investigates why some countries are more successful in 'managing' their ethnic politics than others.
