Doing Thailand: The Anthropologist As A Young Dog In Bangkok In The 1960s
By Niels Mulder
Doing Thailand: The Anthropologist As a Young Dog in Bangkok in the 1960s is the often hilarious tale of an aspiring researcher struggling to find his footing in bewildering Bangkok. Based on raw data and experiences that tend to lose their flavor through ivory-tower manipulation, the narrative offers glimpses on the Thai capital before the advent of traffic jams, life at the time of the war in Vietnam, the academic fashions of the day, and the pitfalls of doing 'field work'. At the same time the book provides insights into things Thai that will be enlarged upon in the follow-up when the young man has grown to be a professional. A devastatingly honest account of experiences we all share and mostly gloss over.
