    Tourist brochures portray Thailand as an 'exotic' country with a rich cultural heritage and strong religious tradition; the reality is more complex. This revealing study charts the development of the Thai nation-state, its changing boundaries, the modification of its ethnic and linguistic make-up, class and gender relations, the role of institutions and ideologies, the emergence of a modern culture, and Thai perceptions of others - principally Burmese, Chinese and Westerners.
