State of the Nation: Thailand
About the publication
This interpretative study of Thiland is the first publication in the Southeast Asia "State of the Nation" Monographs Series. While each of the countries is fast acquiring the status of newly-industrializing economies in the 1980s and 1990s, our knowledge and understanding may be based on stereotypes from the post-colonial transformation. We may end up neglecting many of the significant new issues in Southeast Asian societies that may well determine questions of stability and prosperity in the future. This series provides a thoughtful overview of the significant political, economic and social developments that have shaped the individual states over the last two decades. Each monograph is written by a Southeast Asian Scholar.
