Summary
  • This is the first book to examine the relationships between anthropology and development for the South-East Asian region as a whole
  • Knowledge of social and cultural life has become increasingly important as development practitioners acknowledge that engineered change is not merely a technical and economic activity
  • King argues that there is a constant interaction between anthropological theory and practice, and that the anthropologist at work makes frequent reference to the concepts and methods of the discipline
