Show Summary Details


This chapter introduces the analytical approach used in the subsequent chapters to understand Muslim separatism in Cotabato, arguing against the regnant view that nationalist mobilization is accomplished mainly through the hegemonic effect of nationalist ideas. It criticizes the core concept guiding cultural hegemony and explains that the hegemony concept fails to capture the dynamic and imaginative responses to power made by Cotabato residents.

Keywords: Muslim separatism; Cotabato; nationalist mobilization; nationalist ideas; cultural hegemony
