This study uses many untapped sources to highlight major changes in Bangkok's popular culture which took place early in the 20th century. In the 1920s and 30s the middle classes were increasingly restive with a society long dominated by princely elites. Archival records, popular magazines cartoons and fiction, films and publicity material are all used in the discussion of spreading changes in popular humour, ideas of polygamy, gender roles, family responsibilities, sexual practices and class structure. With black-and-white illustrations, bibliography and index.
