Detailed Product Description
London, John Murray, 1956 reprint. 241 pp, 35 b/w photos, map. Red Cloth bound hardcover with handsome dust jacket. Fine

The story of an anthropologist's exploration of India west of the Subansiri river and his attempts to establish friendly relations with the tribes people of the area. Haimendorf undertook his travels during the end of the Second World War. Rather than taking an armed escort, Haimendorf took his wife and professional collaborator to allay the suspicions of the native peoples. This strategy succeeded and Haimendorf learned a great deal about the local culture of this region, knowledge which he recounts in this book. 

The anthropologist author gathered information on the Daflas and Apa Tanis tribes in the eastern Himalayas. The author describes their codes of honor, the strategy of raiding, bartering of slaves, system of hostages, their techniques of peace negotiations, justice, execution of criminals, social etiquette, customs of these peoples. 

Contents: The Green Barrier; Riotous Reception; Raids & Ransoms; Beginnings of Civilization; Patricians & Slaves; Routes to the North; Transport & Politics; Crusade Against Licha; A Tribal Peace Conference; The Source of the Panior; A Feast & an Execution; Paying India's Tribute; The Valley of the Kamla; Legacy of the Past; Unfinished Exploration.
