Mak Yong was designated a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2005, and included in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2008. The ancient dance-theatre is believed to have originated in the province of Patani in southern Thailand and the state of Kelantan in Malaysia. This book, illustrated with 1970s photographs from the author's fieldwork, is intended to alert the public and authorities to the importance of Mak Yong and its current state of endangerment, and to spur efforts towards its safeguarding.
