This is a study of the social adaptation of Tamil-speaking
labourers from South India to life on Pal Melayu, a rubber estate in
Malaya. Pal Melayu in its west coast Malayan region is conceptualised
as a social system or a 'social field'. The social process - a
syndrome of social action over time - is perceived as an interaction
between analytically separable 'industrial' and 'community' subsystems
comprising the estate social system.
