Headhunting and the Social Imagination in Southeast Asia
Janet Hoskins (ed)
This work brings together comparative material on headhunting in a number of Southeast Asian societies, to examine the cultural contexts in which such practices occurred, and to relate them to colonial history, violence, and ritual. Over the last century, colonial conquest or "pacification" has more or less effectively stopped the practice, but its rituals continue to be performed. 296 pages.
