Bangkok : The Story of a City, Paperback / softback Book

Bangkok : The Story of a City Paperback / softback

Description

In Bangkok, Alec Waugh has created the most fluent, truthful and affectionate portrait not only of the city, but also of the dynasty and culture which created it.

Cutting through confusion and veiled mystery, he unravels the plots, coups, wars, assassinations, invasions and counter-coups of three hundred years of history as if it were this evening's street gossip.

This loving description of the genius, fascination and enduring vitality of Thailand is told with Waugh's customary delight in life and sensual appreciation.

The story is brought up-to-date with an afterword by Bruce Palling, former "Times" correspondent in Thailand.
