This volume brings together exciting new research by anthropologists working on mainland Southeast Asia, in honor of anthropologist Charles F. Keyes. It addresses concepts central to Keyes's own work-ethnicity, religion, and modernity-as they can be applied to the countries of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

In addition to three sections covering different aspects of anthropological research, the book also contains a biography of and interview with Keyes and a selected bibliography of his work.
John A. Marston is a professor and researcher at the Center for Asian and African Studies of El Colegio de Mexico in Mexico City.

"Ethnicity, Borders, and the Grassroots Interface with the State should be of interest to readers who want to understand the history of anthropology in Southeast Asia."
-Nicola Tannenbaum, Journal of Asian Studies
