This fascinating collection offers a range of grassroots perspectives on development among indigenous peoples of Thailand, Vietnam, Burma, Laos, and Cambodia. Twenty-four essays -- including a number written by indigenous people themselves -- present both theoretical analyses and case studies spanning such topics as tourism, forest conservation, agriculture, prostitution, AIDS, and drugs. These are linked to the pivotal and much broader issues of environment, culture, religion, and government policy.
