About This Book

Thailand is well known as the only nation in Southeast Asia never to have been colonised by a European power. But there is much more to the history of Thailand. This book offers a distilled version of the 2000 years of Thai history and covers this trajectory in a little over 50 pages, beginning from Thailand's mythic founding and ending with the December 2007 elections. This overview of the country's history is followed by separate chapters devoted to Thai philosophy, religion, language, literature, arts and culture, folklore and important personalities.
