Forager-traders In South And Southeast Asia
In both South and Southeast Asia, many upland groups make a living through various combinations of gathering and hunting, producing not only subsistence goods but commodities destined for regional and even world markets. These forager-traders have complex and variable histories, defying attempts to categorise them as either ancient relics or recent by-products of colonialism. Forager-Traders in South and Southeast Asia provides a unique attempt to address the relationships between forager-traders and the surrounding political, economic and social worlds of South and Southeast Asia, through a series of detailed comparative case-studies.

"An excellent overview of the prehistory of South and Southeast Asia and the long history of contact between foragers and agriculturalists in these areas...the general themes of long-term histories and changing adaptations in this volume are very relevant from a global perspective including North american Prehistory."
