A Sarong for Clio testifies to an ongoing intellectual dialogue between its ten contributors and Craig J. Reynolds, who inspired these essays. Conceived as a tribute to an innovative scholar, dedicated teacher, and generous colleague, it is this volume's ambition to make a concerted intervention on Thai historiography-and Thai studies more generally-by pursuing in new directions ideas that figure prominently in Reynolds's scholarship. The writings gathered here revolve around two prominent themes in Reynolds's scholarship: the nexus of historiography and power, and Thai political and business cultures-often so intertwined as to be difficult to separate. The chapters examine different types of historical texts, Thai political discourse and political culture, and the media production of consumer culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A Sarong for Clio offers bold explorations into several critical areas of Thai studies. Its essays will certainly reshape our understanding of Thailand in the modern era. Audacious and uncompromising-and splendidly engrossing-it is a worthy tribute to Craig Reynolds, the scholar whose work it honors."

-- Richard A. Ruth, U.S. Naval Academy
