People of the Middle Ground: A Century of Conflict and Central Mindanao, 1880-1980s

Tells the story of people in central Mindanao who, over time, developed a masterful capacity to borrow from the new without losing touch of the old, reimagining them-selves not as willing Western clones or stubborn tribal traditionalists, but as virtuosos at articulating between multiple ways of being. Its central question is: How did they negotiate the middle ground in a world of swirling change? In answering that question, Dr. Edgerton provides a fascinating case study that will be invaluable to scholars everywhere who seek to understand how people with little power manage to articulate a changing sense of identity in the face of forces far more powerful than themselves.
