Shore Beyond Good and Evil by Takano Hideyuki

Book Description

Hideyuki Takano takes us on a journey into the Wa State at the very heart of the 'Golden Triangle' - a remote land with a headhunting past, traditional hilltribes, drugs and guerrilla warfare. This book follows his 7-months in a traditional Wa mountain village, his participation in the complete cycle of opium cultivation and gives insights into a way of life molded by opium and ethnic conflict. As readers are drawn into the life of the Wa, Takano is increasingly drawn into opium dependence, unwittingly becoming a part of this intriguing story. His experiences bring home the stark reality of life on a "Shore Beyond Good and Evil."
