I thought I would share with forum members a new book which I have received 'Cream of Yunling: A Photo Odessey of Yunnan Ethnic Groups' with photos by Zhang Songquan and compiled by Shan Red. The first edition was published in 1998. ISBN 7-80586-526-4/J.319. I sourced the book through Mandarin Books in China

I have found it difficult to find good books on Yunnan. The few books I have, mostly in Chinese, seem to skim through the many nationalities in the province with little information on any of them.

'Cream of Yunling', as the title suggests, is comprised mainly of photos. However, there is some text and it is in both Chinese and English. It covers 26 ethnic groups and, in the case of the larger groups, has several pages of photos (including English captions) on each group. I was particularly interested in finding out more information on the Hani - see the thread 'in search for a special jacquet' started by Louis Dubreuil ... =3290#3290 and there are 8 pages of photos on the Hani in the book with an introductory three paras of text.

I would be interested in information on other books on the ethnic minorities in Yunnan especially where there is more than superficial information.
