Bangkok by Alec Waugh
Book DescriptionIn Bangkok, Alec Waugh has created the most fluent, truthful and affectionate portrait not only of the city, but also of the dynasty and culture which created it. Cutting through confusion and veiled mystery, he unravels the plots, coups, wars, assassinations, invasions and counter-coups of three hundred years of history as if it were this evening's street gossip. This loving description of the genius, fascination and enduring vitality of Thailand is told with Waugh's customary delight in life and sensual appreciation. The story is brought up-to-date with an afterword by Bruce Palling, former "Times" correspondent in Thailand.

Alec Waugh's Island in the Sun - a novel about the West Indies in the 1950's - was one of the outstanding successes of the decade. It was a major film production. Here is a companion volume, a history of the area, with islands instead of human characters as the protagonists.
