Thailand is often called the "Land of Smiles," a nickname which sounds at once pleasant and mysterious. It is said that the Thais have a smile for every emotion, and with so many nuances of smiling, the smile often hides more than it reveals. Inside Thai Society looks behind smiles and appearances in order to discover those regularities and expectations that pervade everyday life. It identifies the basic ideas that give meaning and order to existence and that make life in Thai society eminently reasonable. "A classic work on Thai society" --The Nation "Inside Thai Society is widely held to be the best interpretation available of the Thais and the Thai world view"-- Bankok Post
Niels Mulder is an independent anthropologist who has been actively engaged with Thai ways of life for more than 30 years and is the author of many books, including Thai Images: The Culture of the Public World.
