Social forces in Southeast Asia by Cora Alice Du Bois( Book )

47 editions published between 1947 and 1967 in 3 languages and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social Forces in Southeast Asia was first published in 1949. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions."Forces are at work in Southeast Asia which deserve the most judicious attention of diplomats, the best analysis by social scientists, and a highly serious interest on the part of all responsible people in the Western World."The application of cultural anthropology to problems of world politics and economics presented here has been made by a ranking authority in the field. Dr. Du Bois is the author of The People of Alor and before World War Two she was anthropologist at Sarah Lawrence College. During the war she was associated with the Office of Strategic Services in charge of Indonesian and South Asian research, with headquarters at Kandy, Ceylon. Since October 1945 she has been chief of the Southern Areas Branch, Office of Intelligence Research, Department of State. Siam, Burma, French Indochina, Malaya, and Indonesian Archipelago, and the Philippines offer a geographic unit rich in material for the social scientist, including, as it does, more diverse cultural strains than any other area of the world. The author considers the impact of European colonization on the region, analyzes the tensions created by value difference between East and West, and offers predictions on the course Southeast Asia will take in the future. Dr. Du Bois has risen above statistical science and narrow specialization to wide interpretation and application. The book is full of exciting theses and suggestive ideas which should open new areas for both factual investigation and creative speculation. Dr. Du Bois sees a growing consciousness of nationality in these states of Southeast Asiaand eagerness to work out their common problems and a desire to participate in the United Nations, but she does not minimize the grave economic difficulties of the area or the chance that it will become another powder keg if the states become pawns of the big powers

The 1870 ghost dance by Cora Alice Du Bois( Book )

21 editions published between 1939 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1870 Ghost Dance was a significant but too often disregarded transformative historical movement with particular impact on the Native peoples of northern California. The spiritual energies of this "great wave," as Peter Nabokov has called it, have passed down to the present day among Native Californians, some of whose contemporary individual and communal lives can be understood only in light of the dance and the complex religious developments inspired by it

Alorese OF05( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Alorese live on the Island of Alor, in East Nusa Tenggara Province of Indonesia. Alor is noted as an area of tremendous cultural and linguistic diversity. Alorese estimate between 48 and 60 mutually unintelligible Austronesian languages are spoken on Alor, and many of the inhabitants speak Bahasa Indonesia, the national language of Indonesia. The people in the highland live in small villages, practice Christianity, and their major subsistence activity is agriculture. The people on the coast tend to be Muslim. This collection consists of four documents. Three were written by the American anthropologist Cora DuBois shortly before the outbreak of World War II. All of DuBois' field work was done from 1935 to 1940 in village of Atimelang in central Alor. DuBois' monograph, The people of Alor, is probably the best source of ethnographic information on the Alorese people although it is heavily oriented toward the basic personality structure of the Alorese and their personality development. Some of the ethnographic data contained in this work deal with the food quest, concepts of disease, relationship to the supernatural, marriage, and social relations. The fourth document in this collection is by Scarduelli. It deals with the symbolic organization of space and social identity in the village of Alor Kecil, located at the western tip of Alor Island, and is based on the field work Scarduelli did there during the 1980s. This document includes data on political organization, lineages, rituals of circumcision, marriage exchanges, traditional history, and community structure
