The Haw: Traders of the Golden Triangle

Slip Case. by Andrew Forbes. The Golden Triangle region where Burma, Thailand, Laos and China meet has long been a lawless region, home to wandering tribes, drug warloards, arms dealers, and plain old-fashioned bandits. Yet within this widely romanticized region one group, the Yunnanese Chinese or 'Haw', have established themselves as cultural mediators and merchants par excellance, penetrating the area with their armed mule caravans. For centuries past, and down to the present day, the Haw have been the unrivaled masters of the Golden Triangle. This volume is a comprehensive survey of the Haw life and customs, its past, present and future.
