Studies in Thai History
By David K. Wyatt
Preeminent Southeast Asia scholar David Wyatt brings together in this one rich volume all his major early articles, which many readers may not have had the privilege of reading and enjoying. The 18 pieces, reprinted from articles written between 1963 and 1988, cover the captivating journey of Thai history from the early history of Siam, the "family politics" of the Ayudhya and Bangkok periods, the so-called "First Reign" through the fascinating and complicated history of relationships between Siam and Laos, and the dramatic reign of King Chulalongkorn up to the origins of modern Thailand. This was written in the definitive, readable and authoritative style of one of the most highly regarded researchers in the field.
The late David K. Wyatt was the John Stambaugh Professor of History at Cornell University before he retired.
