Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of abbreviations and acronyms relevant to the discussion of some 'Indonesian' phenomena in present-day Bali: ethnic tensions, 'sweeping' of immigrants, the connections between gangs of preman (thugs) and politicians, recent election politics, and the role of urban middle class intellectuals in articulating exclusive cultural identities. The book suggests that control over natural resources is crucial for understanding the tensions and contradictions between adat and adat structures and the new village administration.
