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.
