"A brilliant and engaging exploration of the ways in which Asian highland people have been represented in the popular academic imagination. This book will raise important questions about the ethics of representation and the need for negotiations across social difference. The author believes passionately in his subject and calls for a newly reflective and situated anthropology. There is a serious and major ethical sensibility at work here."-Nicholas Tapp, Australian National University, author of The Hmong of China: Context, Agency, and the Imaginary and The Impossibility of Self: An Essay on the Hmong Diaspora
