Abstract

The book is divided into two parts. 1- Krung to global city : the dynamics of transformation ; 2- Making Bangkok : studies in place, practice and representation. The work is an in-depth study of the institutions and the people who shaped the Thai metropolis. Adopting insights from anthropology, urban studies and human geography, the A. examines the city's variety from the inner-city slums to the rural-urban fringe. He explains the daily life of the city's inhabitants, middle class suburbanites and women sex workers. - (GL)
