The reports from the field, from the borderlands between China and mainland Southeast Asia, contained in this book provide readers with the first survey of social conditions since the opening of the borders there in the early 1990s, that is, following radical changes in the economic policies of the various states involved, in particular, China, Vietnam and Laos. Most of the essays provide a close-up survey of a particular area and problem, but cumulatively they provide an invaluable general picture of social and cultural change in the border regions where China meets Southeast Asia.
