$65.00 SGD

by Damrong Tayanin and Kristina Lindell

Hailed on its first publication as 'an outstanding contribution to Southeast Asian ethnography – highly recommended not only for specialists in traditional hunting and fishing but also for those readers who wish to gain some insight from the native's point of view – into a fascinating tribal minority culture of highland Southeast Asia' (Roland Mischung, Asian Folklore Studies). This reproduction of the 1991 edition is augmented by new material on food cultivation and its preparation among the Kammu by Kam Raw (Damrong Tayanin) and an essay by Hakan Lundstrom.

"This 462-page culturally focused dictionary is a highly valuable resource to both linguists and anthropologists interested in the Kammu people specifically, but also the indigenous groups of mainland Southeast Asia." "Not surprisingly, this dedicated team has assembled not just a dictionary but essentially an encyclopedia of Kammu language and culture." - Mark J. Alves, Montgomery College, Journal of the Southeast Asian Linguistics Society
