It is easy to forget that progress and modernization often come at the expense of ethnic minorities worldwide. This ethnographic text, focusing on the Orang Asli of Malaysia, demonstrates the importance of recognizing the prices paid by ethnic minorities as national governments attempt to exploit resources and, often times, human differences. Upon reading this book, I felt angry, very sad, and at times, hopeful for change. I found myself comparing the plight of the Orang Asli in Malaysia to the various treatments of Native American tribes by the American government. The similarities are striking, and it seems that no matter where you go in the world, peoples who do not have access to political power are marginalized and abused for the gains of the "greater good."
