Compte rendu de : Inter-ethnic Dynamics in Asia: Considering the Other Though Ethnonyms, Territories and Ritual

Abstract : One of this volume's many merits is that it sets out to seriously address ethnic categorization in Upland Southeast Asia. Many valuable publications have dealt specifically with ethnicity in this region, 1 where the complex intricacies of collective identities are easily noticed by social scientists. A strongpoint of this volume is its highlighting certain dimensions that have traditionally received little attention. This is thanks to a relatively unusual approach aimed at understanding horizontal inter-ethnic relationships. While many scholars have focused on relations between the state and 'minorities', or on opposition between hills and valleys - and sometimes both, as in the case of Scott (2009) - this compilation examines the manifold identity relations that "structure the ethnic groups' social spaces on a local or micro-regional level" (1).
