Seditious Histories : Contesting Thai and Southeast Asian Pasts Paperback / softback
Part of the Critical Dialogues in Southeast Asian Studies series
This collection of eleven essays by senior Asianist Craig Reynolds features debates about meaning in Southeast Asian and Thai history.
He explores themes that have hitherto been treated superficially in Thai historical writing, including Siam's semicolonialism in the late nineteenth century, the concepts of militarism and masculinity, collective memory and dynastic succession, the relationship of manual knowledge to ethnoscience, and the dialectics of globalization.
Other more familiar topics under Reynolds's microscope, treated with new material and approaches, include cultural nationalism and religious history.
