The Culture of the Public World

This is a serious yet entertaining introduction to the public discourse going on in Thai society and the emergence of a particular culture of modernity. Rich in details and comments, this book examines how modern Thais know and debate about their society. In doing so, it signals trends in the evolution of urban Thai public opinion. To assess these, the study opens the treasury of the social studies curriculum, from elementary up to university; the press, and contemporary fiction. These, and purely economic and political interests, shape the diverse positions that engage each other in the current public discourse. Together, they mould the middle-class culture of modernity in Thailand while providing salient insights into the day-to-day practice of Thai politics.
