Duncan McCargo Receives Book Award

I was delighted to read that Duncan McCargo has received a prestigious Asia Society award – with a nice cash sum attached – for his book Tearing the Land Apart: Islam and Legitimacy in Southern Thailand (Cornell University Press, 2008). Duncan’s a colleague in the School of Politics and International Studies at Leeds; his approach to the sort of field work he did for the book was cited in, among other places, David Kilcullen’  The Accidental Guerrilla, as a model of “conflict ethnography”. Well done, Duncan.
