Item description for Towards Civil Society?: Southeast Asian Images (Images (Penerbit Kanisius)) by Niels Mulder...

This unusual study discloses the public discourse among educated, urban Southeast Asians in Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines, and considers how these people conceive of their society and its problems and process. It examines basic patterns of thought, the interpretation of observed behavior, the opinions of public intellectuals, and the dianoses of novelists. Together these provide the basis for evaluating whether or not an activist civil society can develop. Because of the muddled situation prevailing in the countries under scrutiny, the emergence of a public committed to seems to be a necessary condition for strengthening the society and civilizing the state. Will it happen?

Reviews - What do customers think about Towards Civil Society?: Southeast Asian Images (Images (Penerbit Kanisius))?

An informative and very strongly recommended source example regarding field anthropology   May 13, 2007
"Doing Java: An Anthropological Detective Story" by independent anthropologist Niels Mulder is based on Mulder's extensive field research in Java, Thailand, and the Philippines over the three decades from the 1970s to the 1990s. Actively engaged in the study of Javanese society and the author of numerous books and studies on the subject, he retired to Mt. Banahaw in southern Luzon, Philippines, in 2002 where he wrote "Doing Java" which is the second of a two volume intellectual biography and where he focuses on his work, experiences, and commentary concerning the academic climate of Yogyakarta in the late 1970s. An informative and very strongly recommended source example regarding field anthropology as experienced by Mulder, "Doing Java" is a seminal addition to academic library Anthropology reference collections, an inherently fascinating, thoughtful, thought-provoking autobiographical depiction of the life and work of an anthropologist which is particularly commended to the attention of students with respect to Javanese culture and the science of anthropology.
