Philip Cornwel-Smith
Very Thai - Everyday Popular Culture
River Books: Bangkok.
Photographs by John Goss
Hardcover, 256 Seiten, 492 Farbabbildungen.
ISBN 978-974-9863-67-1


This pioneering insight into contemporary Thai folk culture delves beyond the traditional Thai icons to reveal the casual, everyday expressions of Thainess that so delight and puzzle. From floral truck bolts and taxi altars to buffalo cart furniture and drinks in a bags, the same exquisite care, craft and improvisation resounds through home and street, bar and wardrobe.
Never colonised, Thai culture retains nuanced ancient meaning in the most mundane things. The days are colour coded, lucky numbers dictate prices, window grilles become guardian angels, tattoos entrance the wearer. Philip scoured each region to show how indigenous wisdom both adapts to the present and customises imports, applying Roman architecture to shophouses, morphing rock into festive farm music, turning the Japanese motor-rickshaw into the tuk-tuk. Colour-saturated illustrations help you navigate various social traits, whether white-faced hi-so matrons or Red Bull-swilling workers wearing coins in their ear. This is Thai culture as it has never been shown before.
Philip Cornwel-Smith is a freelance editor of the Time Out Bangkok guidebook, following eight years as the founding editor of Bangkok Metro magazine. Born in England, he has contributed to Eyewitness, Archipelago, Lonely Planet and Nokia phone guides to Thailand, as well as international magazines and other Time Out guides.
John Goss is an American artist who works with traditional and electronic media. Residing in Bangkok since 1993, he writes, photographs and travels extensively in Asia.

Philip Cornwel-Smith
Very Bangkok - A Subculture Handbook.
River Books: Bangkok 2008.
Photographs by Dow Wasiksiri
Paperback, 272 Seiten, 300 Farbabbildungen. ISBN 978-974-9863-50-3



Bangkok arrests the visitor with its bewildering juxtaposition of old and new, hi-tech and impromptu, sacred and profane. While modernizing at great pace under myriad outside influences, the Thai capital draws equal vigour from its historic communities, cultural diversity and contemporary urban tribes. The author ofVery Thai and Time Out Bangkok, Philip Cornwel-Smith takes an alternative look at the subcultures of his adopted town in this practical thematic handbook. With the aid of maps, listings and references, the visitor can engage with Bangkok’s contradictory character according to their mood or interest.
Explore the city’s contrasting environments, architectural fabric, ethnic patchwork and intertwined beliefs. Encounter distinct social scenes, whether hip or hi-so, local or bohemian. See how traditional roots infuse the current Thai flowering in arts and entertainments, fashion and food, lifestyle and spas. Wryly observant photography by Dow Wasiksiri (selected for the prestigious 9 Days in the Kingdom project) enhances this insider’s guide to a city like no other.

Niels Mulder
Inside Southeast Asia - Religion, Everyday Life, Cultural Change
Pepin Press, Amsterdam 1996.
Paperback, 264 Seiten.
ISBN 90-5496-028-0


Written for both interested laymen and specialists, this book explores how modern, urban Southeast Asians view and manage their social life. By comparing the ways they live with their religious representations, with intimate and more distant others, and with their rapidly changing environment, the author demonstartes the marked similiarities in the perception of individual and society in three civilizations along the inner littoral of Southeast Asia, irrespective of the great religious diversity that appears to characterize the region at first glance.

Barend Jan Terwiel
Monks and Magic
White Lotus Press: Bangkok 1994; 3. Auflage.
ISBN 974-8496-03-1
Paperback, 320 Seiten.

The book deals with Buddhism as it was practiced in a community in rural Central Thailand. The text is based on anthropological fieldwork during the late 1960s. The scene unfolds with the religious perspective of children and young adults who appear mainly interested in esoteric spells and magical diagrams. Full ritual knowledge is obtained by many men in their twenties when they join the order of monks for at least one Lenten season. The latter parts of the book are devoted to the world view of older people and an analysis of some Buddhist rituals.

F.H. Turpin
A History of the Kingdom of Siam and of the Revolutions that have caused the Overthrow of the Empire up to 1770
White Lotus Press: Bangkok 1997 (Rerint von 1908).
Paperback, 210 Seiten.
ISBN 974-8496-63-5

Originally published in 1771 as the first account in a Western language of the period of the French Embassies to Siam, the reign of King Narai and Constant Phaulcon, and of the sacking of Ayuthaya by the Burmese in 1767. The text was compiled from first hand accounts and reports of Christian missionaries and bishops. It presents a wealth of detail that is not readily available elsewhere. As a classical history, it deals mostly with battles, revolutions and the overturning of personalities and reigns. The final chapters provide an assessment of the trading potential of Siam and the neighboring states. The book, however, does not shun bloodshed and scandal, which seem to have been the order of the day. Indeed, when reading this book one wonders whether our ancestors and their times really are an example for the younger generations.

K.S. Sandhu / A. Mani (eds.)
Indian Communities in Southeast Asia
ISEAS: Singapore 1993.
Paperback, 998 Seiten.
ISBN 981-210-012-1

In Indian Communities in Southeast Asia thirty-one scholars provide an analytical commentary on the contemporary position of ethnic Indians in Southeast Asia. The books is the outcome of a ten-year project undertaken by the editors at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore. It is multi-disciplinary in focus and multi-faceted in approach, providing a comprehensive account of the way people originating from the Indian subcontinent have integrated themselves in the various Southeast Asian countires. The study provides insights into understanding how Indians, an intra-ethnically diverse immigrant group, have intermingled in Southeast Asia, a region that itself is ethnically diverse.
