One Malay Village
Thirty Years of Change and Continuity
by Yoshihiro Tsubouchi
xmalay village.TIF (108532 bytes)
In a society recognized for its multi-racial constitution, the relative homogeneity of Kelantan has inspired researchers to seek the ‘essence’ of ‘Malay-ness’ in the traditional ethnic events and distinctive form of Islam practiced there. Drawing on research conducted in the Kelantan community over a 30 year period, One Malay Village is a comparison of Tubouchi’s initial and final surveys. Through the juxtaposition of two ‘snap-shots’ taken 20 years apart, he reveals a process of change occurring in the community which even the locals are at risk of overlooking. The rapid changes experienced by this Malay community expose the limitations of analytic frameworks such as urban-rural community, modernization, and urbanization.
