Synopsis

For most of the 20th century, migrant settlers from the Philippines have established homesteads and new ways of life on Palawan Island, a one-time forest wilderness. On the island's coastal plains and in the hilly interior, settlers have created dynamic and prosperous communities based on locally variable combinations of agricultural and non-agricultural lifeways. This volume presents an analysis of socioeconomic change in one Palawan settler community founded during the 1940s. Based on detailed information at the levels of community, household and individual spanning a 25-year period (1970-1995), the chapters center around three basic themes: the development of a post-frontier village economy; household strategies for survival and prosperity; and individual ambitions as they relate to ideas about social standing and personal worth. These themes are connected into an integrated analysis of change in the community across time and set within the context of wider changes in society.
