Summary "Looking for Money is about the entanglement of an indigenous people, the Semai of Malaysia, with modernity. A key feature of this entanglement is the process of commoditisation that has resulted in what is emically known as 'looking for money' work." "Based on ethnographic research, Alberto Gomes documents and analyses the extent and effects of Semai involvement in commodity production and wage labour."--BOOK JACKET.
