A landmark study of male homoeroticism in Southeast Asia. "Uncle Go Pak-nam" has been Thailand's advice columnist for gay men in a major national magazine since 1974. Letters to him come from the confused, lovelorn, naive, worldly and lonely. Their sexually explicit stores are often moving, sometimes shocking, sometimes delightful, but always fascinating and deeply human. Uncle Go's advice to them is wild, witty, and wise.
These engaging letters, plus Uncle Go's responses, provide the basis for Dr. Jackson's ingenious and insightful analyses and commentaries into male-to-male relationships in what may be one of the world's few non-homophobic societies.
This landmark book is a fully revised and expanded version of Male Homosexuality in Thailand: An Interpretation of Contemporary Thai Sources (New York: 1989)
Although this book is an academic study, lay people will find it readable and compelling.

Jackson's book is an ingenious analysis of a unique corpus of texts, and provides a series of insights into a society that must be explained if we are to understand the range of social organizations of homosexuality. To open such a discourse is no small accomplishment. Jackson deserves praise for his pioneering work.Review:
Reading this book was an overwhelming experience for me. . . The material is rich in emotion and association, and I can pay the book no greater compliment than to say that it brought Thailand back to me more powerfully than any book or photo I've ever come across. -- Passport, USA
