Title: Bangkok: Place, Practice and Representation (Routledge Studies in Asia's Transformations)
Description: London, Routledge. 2002, First Edition. (ISBN: 0415188539) Hardcover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bangkok is one of Asia's most interesting, varied, controversial and challenging cities. It is a city of contradictions, both in its present and past. This unique book examines the development of the city from its earliest days as the seat of the Thai monarchy to its current position as an infamous contemporary metropolis. Adopting insights from anthropology, urban studies and human geography, this is a powerful account of the city and its dynamic spaces. Marc Askew examines the city's variety from the inner-city slums to the rural-urban fringe, and gives us a keen insight into the daily life of the city's inhabitants, be they middle-class suburbanites or sex workers. No Jacket, as Issued. New/No Jacket.
