(Picture unavailable)
ex libris, library withdrawn stamp, else text clean & binding tight. 2 distribution maps of Ethnolingustic Groups of Mainland Southeast Asia in rear pocket. Index, bibliography.

"A remarkably well-organized reference work in ethnology. Made possible by extensive collaborative scholarship, it tracks down the numerous tribes and minorities in Malaya, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and both Viet-Nams, many of them migrating at different times in the past from South China. The heart of the book is a series of compact summaries about each of the more than 150 groups, systematizing them by language and cross-referencing by area. Frequent internal documentation in the text, a good bibliography, an index of tribal names with synonyms, and a country name concordance to locate language groups by area afford easy reference. "
