In this work the author reports on post world war 'development' in Thailand which, while providing economic uplift to some, has also resulted in environmental and community change. Based on 16 month's research among rural communities in Western Thailand, the book particularly highlights the dilemmas in giving space for social control of the changes in the face of top down solutions imposed from outside the community. Very Good Hardback. 244 pages with an index, bibliography, figures, tables and black and white plates.
