Short Description
This volume is a collection of eighteen ethnographic essays on anthropological explorations in East and SouthEast Asia, reprinted from the Journal of the Anthropological Society of Bombay, 1886–1936. Divided into five parts, it includes works on history, religion, tea cults, the Torii of Japan and the Torans on the veneration of the dead in China; on Tibet’s customs, the Lamas and folklore in the eastern Himalayas; on the monastic
institution of Burma and its Phongys; on Malay folklore, folk medicine, etiological folktales; and on Burmese and Indian folk beliefs. It provides evidences that the history of anthropological writings in India is much older than is believed to be.
