Village Life: Culture and Transition in Thailand?s Northeast
By Seri Phongphit & Kevin Hewison
This revised edition deals with Thailand?s Northeast?Isan as did the original version published in 1990. A large and populous area of great cultural diversity, it has retained its distinctiveness. This book provides insights into village life in the Northeast, showing also how it has changed under the pressures of centralization and economic development. As the pace of change has accelerated, so the struggle for self-reliance has become more difficult. Village Life reflects on the remarkable changes that have taken place in the Northeast and shows how villagers are seeking ways forward. As the book is based on the activities of non-governmental organizations and local people, there will be much of interest to academics, professionals, and others involved in development work.
