About This Book

Changing perceptions of the interrelationship of injury, legal process and negotiation, and religious relevance by people in a changing area of Northern Thailand are explored in this socio-legal study. The book includes two detailed case studies, field observations in the mid-1970s and again in the 1990s, as well as court records of industrial accident claims. The authors indicate that there is a pattern in which the law is seen to be increasingly remote from what actually happens or is perceived by those injured or otherwise involved.
