The Allure of Ambiguity: The “West” and the Making of Thai Identities
This introductory chapter investigates the ways of drawing Siam/Thailand into potential comparative debate with a broader, global field via an engagement with postcolonial thought. It examines the issues at play in the ambiguous allure that the West has generated for Siam/Thailand in the development of new cultural identities post-1850.
