Abstract

Across wide areas of Southeast Asia, there was a special quality in the historical relationship between European colonial regimes and tribal societies. The tribal people were, as a general rule, warlike hill rice farmers, without traditions of kingship or any written history. Although they frequently inhabited large regions of the interior, they were usually less numerous than the wet-dee-growing lowland or coastal peoples with their courts and chronicles and their heritage of Indian- or Chinese-influenced civilization.
