Figures of Criminality in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Colonial Vietnam (Studies on Southeast Asia, No. 25) by Vicente L. Rafael



A complex examination of "criminality" and "the criminal" as constructs and active presences in Southeast Asia. Contributors explore such themes as surveillance, incarceration, law and custom, secrecy, and corruption. A fascinating study of power and subversion in the modern postcolonial nation-state. Contributors include Daniel S. Lev, Henk M. J. Maier, Rudolf Mrazek, James T. Siegel, and others.
