About the Author

Maurizio Peleggi is Associate Professor in the Department of History at the National University of Singapore. He is also the author of Lords of Things (2002) and The BFI Companion to the Western (2002).


'Maurizio Peleggi's new book on the modern history of Thailand offer a boldly innovative introduction to the kingdom and its nation-building projects. It concentrates on the long twentieth century when Thailand underwent seismic shifts in nearly every arena of human and institutional life, and from which the country emerged as 'modern' ... it successfully assimilates the most recent historical and historiographical scholarship on Thailand into a new narrative ... an intrepid and original treatment of both history and Thailand.' - South East Asia Research
