About this title

Synopsis:

Hideyuki Takano takes us on a journey into the Wa State at the very heart of the 'Golden Triangle' - a remote land with a headhunting past, traditional hilltribes, drugs and guerrilla warfare. This book follows his 7-months in a traditional Wa mountain village, his participation in the complete cycle of opium cultivation and gives insights into a way of life molded by opium and ethnic conflict.

As readers are drawn into the life of the Wa, Takano is increasingly drawn into opium dependence, unwittingly becoming a part of this intriguing story. His experiences bring home the stark reality of life on a "Shore Beyond Good and Evil."

Born in Tokyo in 1966, Hideyuki Takano went to Waseda University, Tokyo where he majored in French literature. He's visited South America, Africa, and Southeast Asian many times and writes books and reports on remote regions. He lives in Tokyo.
