The State and Ethnic Politics in Southeast Asia

Synopsis

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.
