One century ago, Bangkok was a vastly different city. Through photographs taken in 1900 and others taken in 2008, as well as newspaper articles from the period, author Steve Van Beek explores the growth of one of Asia's great cities, how its foreign residents regarded it, each other, and life in Thailand. This revealing book provides fascinating insights into why the city looks as it does today, adding rich layers of history to our understanding of it.
