Resistance and Rule in Cotabato

Resistance and Rule in Cotabato

(p.269) Chapter 11 Resistance and Rule in Cotabato
Muslim Rulers and Rebels

Thomas M. McKenna

University of California Press

This chapter discusses theoretical issues surrounding the politics of heritage, and analyzes them in light of the various configurations of culture and power evidenced in Cotabato from the precolonial period to the present. It considers how power in Muslim Cotabato has been both enunciated by rulers and questioned by those subjected to it, and discusses the problems concerning the nature of traditional Islamic rule in Cotabato and the derivation and prevalence of a transcendent Philippine Muslim identity. The chapter also proposes an alternative approach for analyzing ordinary and extraordinary resistance based on a radically reformulated notion of hegemony as public accommodation of power.

Keywords:   politics of heritage, Cotabato, Islamic rule, Philippine Muslim identity, hegemony, culture, power
