Ethnic Groups of Cambodia – Profile of Austro-Asiatic-Speaking Peoples is the second of a comprehensive three-volume work that provides a detailed account of the ethnic groups of Cambodia.
All three volumes are lavishly illustrated in color and contain relevant references. The present volume provides individual sketches of each of the 23 Mon-Khmer-speaking groups. These include historical background and descriptions of costumes, crafts, house and village designs, agriculture and economy, society and religion. There are fascinating glimpses of remote and rarely seen ethnic groups and descriptions of rapidly disappearing traditions. Ninety-seven color illustrations provide portraits of these groups.
