Muslim Rulers and Rebels

Thomas M. McKenna

University of California Press

This chapter examines the land, people, and contemporary political economy of Cotabato. It describes the community of Campo Muslim, which serves as an architectural testament to the peripheralization of Cotabato's Muslims under the Philippine republic. The chapter explains that most community members are acutely conscious of being poor Muslims in a city dominated by Christians, and that awareness has induced a tempered resentment toward city Christians which may occasionally be agitated into intense anger by a perceived offense.

Keywords:   Cotabato, political economy, Campo Muslim, Philippine republic, poor Muslims, Christians
