Details

Formerly known as the Kingdom of Siam, Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia never to have been colonized by a European nation. It is also one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Thailand has developed its economy at a surprising pace in the last decades of the 20th century and the dawn of the 21st. Even with the Asian financial crisis, Thailand's economy has recovered and continues to step forward. And accompanying this economic surge has been the implementation of a new constitution. However, Thailand also faces major challenges. Prostitution, drugs, and HIV/AIDS are significant social issues, along with rebuilding efforts in the wake of the devastating 2004 tsunami. Environmental problems include deforestation and water and air pollution. Will the civilian governments be able to address these issues as well as the rise of Islamic militants and separatists in the south of the country? Thailand is a thoroughly researched, crisply designed book that investigates these issues, as well as the physical, cultural, and social features of this emerging nation.
