Summary

Indigenous Peoples, Ethnic Groups, and the State provides a concise introduction to the process of modernization and its effect on tribalism and ethnic parochialism.

Part of the Cultural Survival Studies in Ethnicity and Change series, this text focuses on key issues affecting indigenous and ethnic groups worldwide.

Ethnic conflicts proliferate throughout the world as indigenous peoples are becoming increasingly vocal in demanding their rights, including the right to be different. Readers are invited to reexamine their ideas about the state, the role of ethnicity in it, and the peculiar situation of indigenous peoples, who are ethnic minorities alien to the states in which they live.

Features

  • Cultural examples are thoroughly researched and focus on specific global issues that illustrate the effects of modernization and how they impact that particular culture.
  • In-depth information on several indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities expand students' grasp on the experiences and problems that these and other groups encounter.
  • Brief and inexpensive, this text can be used as a main text or supplement in a variety of courses.


New To This Edition

  • Up-to-date coverage of areas that have experienced radical change very recently, including Yugoslavia, Rwanda and Central Africa, and Indonesia in the post-Suharto era.
  • Case Studies have been thoroughly updated to reflect the ever-changing global issues that affect each culture.
  • The number of maps has been doubled to provide students better geographic background on key cultural groups.
