Between Hills and Plains
Power and Practice in Socio-Religious Dynamics among Karen
by Yoko Hayami
In this study, Hayami suggests that the Karen in north-western Thailand are located ‘betwixt and between’ the peripheries and the mainstream of the modern nation-state. It demonstrates how the Karen actively adopt new religious practices in ways that enable them to maintain communal boundaries and cultural particularity at the same time as they integrate themselves into the broader stream of Thai society.
