Living On The Periphery.jpg
Book Description:

What set out as a study on the survival strategies of the Orang Asli in the wake of state-led development found the author being confronted by another element-Islamizationinfluencing both their social relations and their access to development.

The book gives an exceptional peak into the contemporary social and economic situation of the Orang Asli in their village setting, providing insight not only into the familiar dichotomy of haves and have-nots, but also into the villagers' close relations with both Chinese and Malays, including intermarriage, over many generations.

Living on the Periphery exposes the attitudes of the nonOrang Asli, their different world views, and especially their control of local resources. Even for people familiar with Malaysia, Nobuta's ethnographic account puts a spotlight on the jarring inequalities experienced by Orang Asli that otherwise are so easily overlooked.

"Living on the Periphery shows that there is no shortage of problems arising from development projects and Islamization in the history of the small indigenous Temuan community studied.... The book is exceptional in that it provides by far the most detailed description to date of development and Islamic pressure on the Orang Asli." A Baer, Asian Anthropology (Vol.7) 2008
