Barme's [be sure to get accent in] prose is very accessible, and with its attractive graphics, this paperback version will be a useful addition to courses on modern Southeast Asia. Siam, bringing it to life with a vibrancy and immediacy by parading before us the issues and images that roused thepopulation of early 20th century Bangkok. By focusing on cinema, the press, cartoons, gender, and sexuality a century ago, he produces an original and fascinating picture of social and political change. During the early decades of the twentieth century, Thailand's capital, Bangkok, took on an increasingly cosmopolitan character-a development fueled both by global economic forces and a local revolution in communications. No one will read this book and not have their image of Bangkok and Thailand changed. No historian will want to ignore his story or his methods.
