Description:
Though Thailand has become known for its picturesque beaches and famous temples, there's much more to this popular holiday destination than many realise. This title offers an engaging look at the country's last 250 years - from coups and violent massacres to the invention of Pad Thai in the 1930's. Readers will learn the vibrant story of Thailand's emergence as a prosperous Buddhist state, its transformation from traditional kingdom to democratic constitutional monarchy and its subsequent rise to prominence in Southeast Asian affairs. Thailand's dramatic history spans centuries of conflict, and this book recounts many of these fascinating episodes.
