DOCUMENT INFO
Description: In addition to analyzing the dynamic interaction of Qing-Tai political and military relations at the regional level, a process characterized by both hostile aggression and cultural accommodation, Giersch also examines the region and its transformation in an interregional and international context by discussing Burmese (Myanmar), Siamese (Thailand), and Chinese state relations at their borders.
