Book News Annotation:
Haore (humanities and religion, Johnson County Community College, Overland Park, Kansas) draws on his own experience and knowledge from numerous visits to Thailand, dissertation field research in Bangkok, and 15-plus years of marriage to a Thai native in creating a reference text for students, travelers, business people, and interested general readers. The text includes narrative chapters on Thai history, geography, demographics, economy, social institutions, and contemporary issues. It also contains a timeline of key events in Thailand's history; an alphabetical listing of significant people, places, and events; a concise guide to Thai language, food, and etiquette; a directory of business, cultural, government, and tourist organizations; and an annotated bibliography of print and non-print resources.
