Protecting Siam's Heritage

Edited by Chris Baker
The cultural heritage of Siam is exceptionally rich and distinctive. As everywhere, this heritage is under threat—from the pace of change, from the demands of tourism, from mismanagement, and from neglect. This book is the first to examine the value of Siam's heritage and the need to protect it. These nineteen essays are written by pioneers of conservation over the last generation and by the activists of today.
