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.
