9780404159382: Lamet: Hill Peasants in French Indochina

This classic account of fieldwork was written by a famous anthropologist in the late 1930s. Izikowitz studied this remote Mon-Khmer group living in northern Laos. The account of most aspects of this society and culture is outstanding in this comprehensive documentation of the Lamet's relationship with their environment, shifting cultivation and its ritual aspects, and the use of wild forest produce. The monograph includes a discussion on kinship, which in the words of Rodney Needham was Karl Gustav Izikowitz's "singular contribution to the comparative study of alliance and classification."
