Colonization and Conflict

Contemporary Settlement Frontiers in South and Southeast Asia

By Danilo Geiger

In the first study of its kind, seven Asian and European researchers visit the volatile settlement frontiers of South and Southeast Asia where agricultural pioneers and indigenous people cohabit uneasily. Debunking the myth that poverty and over-population explain the colonization of the indigenous fringe, Colonization and Conflict explores the policy frames that support settlement and examines the forms of indigenous accommodation and resistance to it. The book also looks at the conflict mitigating record of institutional solutions where colonization led to violence. (Series: Asien: Forschung und Wissenschaft/LIT Studies on Asia - Vol. 2)
