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:

· 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.

Synopsis of Ethnicity in Asia: A Comparative Introduction

Social scientists, most from or in the region, synthesize the current academic understanding of ethnicity in countries in East and Southeast Asia. Among the themes they address are the development of ethnicity, state policies towards minorities, some particular ethnic minorities, and ethnic conflict within states. The coverage is thickest for the last decades of the 20th century. Distributed by Taylor and Francis. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
