The Akha - Guardians of the Forest by Jim Goodman

From the "People and Cultures of Southeast Asia" Series

Teak House has produced a series of extremely high quality books combining the large format and excellent photography associated with "coffee table books" with authoritative text from some of the best known experts in their fields. Ideal for both travelers and academic readers.

With their unusual village boundary gates, annual Swing Festival and exotic costumes, the Akha are one of the most colourful mountain-dwelling peoples in Southeast Asia. Over the centuries they have developed a rich and complex culture that provides customs and behavioral rules for all of life's possible contingencies. Originating in China's Yunnan Province, the Akha spread into Vietnam, Laos, Burma and Thailand, and in recent generations have been subjected to the vicissitudes of war, revolution and modernization. In spite of such pressures they have managed to maintain the basic values and tenets of a thousand-year-old tradition.

Jim Goodman, originally from Cincinnati, moved to Asia permanently in 1972 and has published several books on Nepal and Thailand. In 1988 he settled in Chiang Mai and has been engaged for ten years in handicraft production with the Akha people. Since 1992 he has been exploring the minority-inhabited areas of China's Yunnan province where he spends several months a year.
