THAI SOCIETY IN COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE
Studies in Contemporary Thailand No. 1

THAI SOCIETY IN COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE   (5.2 K)

Sums up in a series of essays Erik Cohen's many years of research on social change in modern Thailand. Beginning with a novel, in depth analysis of the fundamental symbols defining Thai collective identity, the author explores the peculiarities of the ambiguous process of continuity-in-change in Thai society. The theoretical approach developed in these chapters is then applied to several specific issues, such as the nature of modernization and democracy in Thailand, and problems of regionalism in Isan, and of the Thai Muslim minority in the South. The volume concludes with a comparative study of the social dynamics of Thailand, Burma and Laos in the modern era.
