Title: Space and the Production of Cultural Difference Among the Akha Prior to Globalization: Channeling the Flow of Life
Author: Deborah E. Tooker
Editor: Paul van der Velde
Abstract: This book investigates the meaning of spatial practices in a non-state society, and their significance in the formation of a distinctive collective identity that developed in a regional context. The society is that of the AKHA (phone.`Aja'), a minority upland group found in Northern Thailand and surrounding countries with whom I have conducted long-term, participant-observational fieldwork between the years 1982 and 2010. This book focuses on the time period 1982-1985.
