AbstractThis book describes the life of Malayan villagers in Wakaf Bharu, a community in the Kelantan state of Malaysia, as observed in 1968-1993. Information about Malayan villagers and their culture is organized in the context of the authors own fieldwork adventures and misadventures. Topics covered include kinship, linguistics, gender relations, economics, and political structures. Based on the authors lively field work narratives, the book also provides important insights into the human dimension of undertaking extended ethnographic research which is critical in the reliability of the information collected.
