About the Publication

Drawing upon current theoretical debates in social anthropology, development studies and political ecology, and presenting original research from across the archipelago, this book addresses the changing histories and identities of upland people as they relate in new ways to the natural resource base, to markets and to the state. The study fills important analytical gaps and addresses real-world concerns by exploring the uplands as components of national and global systems of meaning, power and production.
