Pirates, Prostitutes And Pullers. Explorations In The Ethno-and Social History Of Southeast Asia
|Publisher||New Day Publishers|
Pirates, Prostitutes and Pullers reveals the lively history of Southeast Asia’s underclass–the peasants, urban coolies, prostitutes, maritime raiders and sea nomads who played a formative role in the region’s remarkable transformation.
The sixteen essays in this collection focus on critically important themes such as the meaning and constitution of ‘culture’; the global political economy; human trafficking; urbanization and colonial policy and practice.
Professor Warren utilizes documentary sources, oral traditions, photographs and paintings to provide not only an erudite example of the exploratory power of historical ethnography but also new conceptual frameworks for our understanding of Southeast Asian history.
