This book investigates the meaning and motivations of the movement for Muslim separatism in the Philippines as it occurred in Cotabato, tracing the development of a Muslim nationalist identity, the origins of Muslim insurgency, and the mobilization of popular support for the separatist movement. It explores the complex configurations of power and resistance in contemporary Cotabato by means of an ethnography and of a specific urban community, and provides an ethnographic account of economic survival and political mobilization in Campo Muslim.
