Almost in passing, Bjarnegard mentions in her essay in Tomsa and Ufen's book the role of Thai political parties in arranging drainage, roads, electricity, and admission in school for their supporters.
More recently, democratic developments in Indonesia have made the practice of cultivating votes through illicit, informal, or targeted distributions of goods an increasing concern, since those practices might now have real effects on political power both locally and nationally (Biinte and Croissant 2011; Hadiz 2010; Ufen 2006).
(40) Andreas Ufen, for his part, has even identified a process of 'Philippinisation' of Indonesian party politics, with cashed-up national and local patrons using parties as their personal vehicles.

Ufen notes that the numbers of syncretic or abangan is declining while the numbers of orthodox or santri is growing due to the santrinisasi phenomenon, namely the transformation of many abangan Muslims in Indonesia into santri Muslims.
Given the number of good analyses, then, that have recently become available (e.g., Brown 2008; Kee 2008; Maznah 2008; Ong 2008; Ooi, Saravanamuttu, and Lee Hock Guan 2008; Ufen 2008; Welsh 2008; Chin and Wong 2009; Moten 2009; Pepinsky 2009; Weiss forthcoming), only a short account is necessary here.
