Overview'The Ancient Highlands of Southwest China' offers a vivid account of the history of warrior polities occupying the southwestern frontiers of early China. Placing the archaeology of the 'Dian' and its Bronze Age neighbours in dialogue with anthropological theory, Alice Yao shows how local histories of kingship come to challenge and resist imperial governance as well as the production of historiography.
