Tearing Apart the Land: Islam and Legitimacy in Southern Thailand. Since January 2004, a violent separatist insurgency has raged in southern Thailand, resulting in more than three thousand deaths. Though largely unnoticed outside Southeast Asia, the rebellion in Pattani and neighboring provinces and the Thai government's harsh crackdown have resulted in a full-scale crisis. Tearing Apart the Land by Duncan McCargo, one of the world's leading scholars of contemporary Thai politics, is the first fieldwork-based book about this conflict.

Southern Thailand now resembles a war zone. Tearing Apart the Land is an excellent book that tells us much about the separatist conflict in Southern Thailand and also provides invaluable insights into national politics i. McCargo gives a thorough explanation of why unrest began in southern Thailand, and why it has spread. By the end of 2008, more than 3000 people had been killed in the south since the beginning of the decade. Bangkok still refuses to consider any form of real autonomy for the region and McCargo is pessimistic about the future. Tearing Apart the Land is an excellent book that tells us much about the separatist conflict in Southern Thailand and also provides invaluable insights into national politics in Thailand. This is essential reading. ―Kevin Hewison, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

NEW YORK, November 6, 2009 - The separatist insurgency that has raged in southern Thailand and has claimed more than 3,000 lives can only be resolved by addressing the issue of legitimacy and establishing a more participatory mode of governance, according to Duncan McCargo, author of Tearing Apart the Land: Islam and Legitimacy in Southern Thailand, winner of the 2009 Asia Society Bernard.

This study examined the correlations between land use/land cover types and phytoplankton composition and density in six reservoirs of Phuket province, southern Thailand, during June 2011-January 2012. Using geographic information system, land use/land cover types around the reservoirs were classified into three main groups: three reservoirs with a high proportion of urban land use; two reservoirs. with a combination of urban land use and forest cover; and a reservoir with a high proportion of forest cover

Tearing Apart the Land: Islam and Legitimacy in Southern Thailand. Singapore: NUS Press. Tearing Apart the Land: Islam and Legitimacy in Southern Thailand. Tearing Apart the Land by Duncan McCargo, one of the world’s leading scholars of contemporary Thai politics, is the first fieldwork-based book about the rebellion in Pattani and neighbouring provinces since 2004.

Since January 2004, a violent separatist insurgency has raged in southern Thailand, resulting in more than three thousand deaths. Though largely unnoticed outside Southeast Asia, the rebellion in Pattani and neighboring provinces and the Thai government's harsh crackdown have resulted in a full-scale crisis. Tearing Apart the Land by Duncan McCargo, one of the world's leading scholars of contemporary Thai politics, is the first fieldwork-based book about this conflict. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of the region, hundreds of interviews conducted during a year's research in the troubled area, and unpublished Thai-language sources that range from anonymous leaflets to confessions extracted by Thai security forces, McCargo locates the roots of the conflict in the context of the troubled power relations between Bangkok and the Muslim-majority "deep South."

McCargo describes how Bangkok tried to establish legitimacy by co-opting local religious and political elites. This successful strategy was upset when Thaksin Shinawatra became prime minister in 2001 and set out to reorganize power in the region. Before Thaksin was overthrown in a 2006 military coup, his repressive policies had exposed the precariousness of the Bangkok government's influence. A rejuvenated militant movement had emerged, invoking Islamic rhetoric to challenge the authority of local leaders obedient to Bangkok.

For readers interested in contemporary Southeast Asia, insurgency and counterinsurgency, Islam, politics, and questions of political violence, Tearing Apart the Land is a powerful account of the changing nature of Islam on the Malay peninsula, the legitimacy of the central Thai government and the failures of its security policy, the composition of the militant movement, and the conflict's disastrous impact on daily life in the deep South. Carefully distinguishing the uprising in southern Thailand from other Muslim rebellions, McCargo suggests that the conflict can be ended only if a more participatory mode of governance is adopted in the region.
