Reviews/Comments:
This book is the result of over 30 years of research and fieldwork by the author on the Naga people of far western Burma, a loosely related, fiercely independent group of tribes that practised headhunting until well into the 20th century. Tracing their origins, and examining their social structures, religion and ritual, architecture, arts and crafts, hunting and warfare, costume and ornament, the present work is destined to become an essential study for all with interest in this fascinating people and their rich traditional culture, now rapidly being lost to the forces of modernity.
