The Ambiguous Allure of the West: Traces of the Colonial in Thailand
'The Ambiguous Allure of the West pulls Thai Studies away from its long-dominant introspection and focus on an alleged Thai exceptionalism and sites it in mainstream comparative and theoretical contexts. Original conception and execution are embedded in the collection of essays, which apply Western post-colonial theory to the study of Asian history and culture. This is the first book that shatters the "uniqueness" of Thailand and demonstrates the many ways in which Southeast Asia is comparable to the rest of the world.' - excerpted from back cover.
