Synopsis: The lush photography of this pictorial study of tribes--many of whom have never been recorded on film--makes it one of the most evocative cultural portraits ever published. As an anthropological study, the 28 tribes of Burma reflect the wide diversity of this nation's races. Richard K. Diran, an American photographer/writer who lives in Thailand, has been visiting and recording the tribes of Burma for the past 15 years. 200 color illustrations.
