Klappentext

This book is designed as a comprehensive comparative introduction to ethnicity in East and Southeast Asia since 1945. Each chapter covers a particular country looking at such core issues as:
- the ethnic minorities or groups in the country of concern, how many ethnic groups, population, language and culture group they belong to, traditional religions and arts
- government policy towards the ethnic minorities or groups
- the economies of the ethnic minorities or groups and the relation with the national economy;
- problems of national integration caused by the ethnic minorities or groups;
- the impact of ethnic issues on the country's overall foreign relations.



Zusammenfassung
This text brings together a coherent study of ethnicity in the region as a whole, allowing the contributors to build on the ideas developed for each country to form broader themes applicable more generally to East and Southeast Asia.
