About This Book

These 90 essays come from non-Thai friends and admirers of Acharn Sulak Sivaraksa, one of Thailand's better known intellectuals, to celebrate his 70th birthday. A writer, teacher, social activist, publisher, and gadfly, Sulak leaves a deep impression on anyone who has met him. A committed traditionalist --- he insists on calling his country Siam -- he is nevertheless a visionary who tirelessly touts the importance of an alternative Buddhist economic strategy in this age of globalisation. This collection is both a tribute to Sulak's accomplishments, as well as a blueprint for a way forward for Thailand, and the rest of the world.
