"Splendid . . . Combines the readability of Akenfield or Pig Earth with an accessible and illuminating theoretical commentary."-A.F. Robertson, Times Higher Education Supplement "Weapons of the Weak is a brilliant book, combining a sure feel for the subjective side of struggle with a deft handling of economic and political trends."-John R. Bowen, Journal of Peasant Studies "No one who wants to understand peasant society, in or out of Southeast Asia, or theories of change, should fail to read [this book]."-Daniel S. Lev, Journal of Asian Studies This sensitive picture of the constant and circumspect struggle waged by peasants materially and ideologically against their oppressors shows that techniques of evasion and resistance may represent the most significant and effective means of class struggle in the long run.
