9786162150746: Finding Their Voice: Northeastern Villagers and the Thai State

This book traces the evolution of the rural, Lao-speaking people of northeastern Thailand, now over a third of the nation’s population, from a traditional peasantry into “cosmopolitan” villagers who are actively shaping Thai politics. The electoral successes of the Thai Rak Thai/Pheu Thai Party in the early twenty-first century and the strong support given to the Red-Shirt movement appear to have finally given the cosmopolitan villagers of northeastern Thailand a continuing voice in the nation’s political process.

Review:

"Keyes tells the story from the micro-viewpoint of the village and the macro-level of the region. . . this book charts the social and intellectual changes underlying one major element of [regional] turbulence, and is thus necessary reading for understanding current and near future Thai politics."―Chris Baker, Bangkok Post

"In the few months since this book was written, Thai politics has done another somersault. These ructions will continue. This book charts the social and intellectual changes underlying one major element of this turbulence, and is thus necessary reading for understanding current and near future Thai politics."―Bangkok Post
