Tearing apart the land : Islam and legitimacy in southern Thailand

Causes of radicalisationRadicalisationRegionsWorld

Drawing on many months of fieldwork, diverse documentary and oral sources, and long experience and expertise in the study of Thai politics, Duncan McCargo provides a richly nuanced account of the ongoing conflict in southern Thailand. McCargo situates the conflict within the context of major shifts in Thai politics since the rise of Thaksin Shinawatra at the turn of the twenty-first century, as well as changes in religion and society in the southern Muslim areas of the country. This is the single best study of southern Thailand.
