In the past decade, the rise of a frequently violent competition for business and political leadership in the Thai provinces has drawn attention to how these centers are being transformed by capitalist development. Contributions from McVey (emerita, Southeast Asian politics, U. of London) and other international scholars examine the interaction of local and global forces in the transition from agrarian to industrial society. A sampling of topics includes greed and violence, local godfathers in Thai politics, and the entrepreneurs of Khorat. Published by the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, and simultaneously in North America by U. of Hawaii Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
