Series Editor : Michael C. Howard
This book is the first survey of the textiles of the peoples of the Central Highlands of Vietnam. It serves to fill in a major gap in the literature on Southeast Asian textiles as well as providing an important addition to the ethnography of the Central Highlands. The Central Highlands are occupied by peoples belonging to twenty-one ethnic groups who speak Malayo-Polynesian and Mon-Khmer languages. The book provides background on the history and culture of these groups and it discusses their weaving and dress traditions. In addition to numerous black and white photographs, this book presents 201 new color photographs illustrating the peoples and their textiles.
