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. It is an engaged study, which fills important analytical gaps and addresses real-world concerns, exploring the uplands as components of national and global systems of meaning, power, and production. It offers a significant re-assessment of concepts, processes, histories, relationships and discourses, many of which are not unique to either the uplands or Indonesia, making the book essential and compelling reading for both scholars and practitioners.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An important overall theme of the book is the ways in which political, social and economic marginality is constituted, expressed and sustained....Overall the quality of the contributions to the volume is high; Li's editorial introduction and her first chapter on marginality, power and production are especially useful....Several of the chapters...provide excellent historical and ethnographic detail."
