The groups included in this volume are: the Palaung, Wa, Rawang, Lisu, Akha, Karen, Shan and Hmong. The study examines textile traditions that have disappeared as well as the textiles that are being woven today by these groups. The book provides background on the history and cultures of these peoples and an extensive survey of their textiles based on numerous field studies by the author as well as on examination of museum collections and the existing literature. In addition to dozens of black and white photographs and maps, there are color plates with over 200 photographs.
