11: Bangkok's Thammasat University Uprising
Bangkok's Thammasat University Uprising Nudged by a newly-freed media and an increasingly prosperous Chinese minority, the government of Thailand is being asked to come clean on the nation's history, including bits that have been swept under the carpet -- like the bloody suppression of a students uprising in 1976. Emerging from the shadow of decades of military rule, Thailand is today seen as well on its way to establishing a stable parliamentary democracy.

... pea-souper", a dense, acid fog has blanketed not just whole cities , as happened in London in the 1950’s, but a huge swathe of south-East Asia. From the fleshpot beaches of Phuket in Thailand to the southern Philippines, the islands surrounding the Java Sea and even Papua New Guinea, the poisonous smog envelops an area home to more than 70 million people. The tourist guides describe the Rainforests of ... shaken in recent weeks, the smog has been interpreted in the region as another symbol of disaster. The long term impact on the health of the countries in the grip of the haze- Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Papua New Guinea and Thailand - is impossible to gauge.

As the relative role of the private sector increased in the economy, the importance of enterprise management and performance correspondingly increased. Looking more deeply at Thailand’s performance, manufactured exports grew by about 23% per year between 1980 and 1995, almost doubling during 1992-1995. However, in 1996 export growth fell practically to 0 per cent, with labor-intensive exports usually ... exchange rate of the baht is estimated to have appreciated by about 15% during 1995-97, primarily because of the linkage to the US$, which appreciated against the yen.

16: East Asian Crisis In The Econo
... to drop. The crisis was brought on by currency devaluations, bad banking practices, high foreign debt, loose government regulation, and corruption. Due to East Asia’s large impact on the world economy, the panic in Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, and other Asian countries has prompted other countries to worry about the affect on their own economies and offer aid to the financially troubled nations (Sanger 1). The East Asian crisis has affected almost all of the Asian ations, but the three hardest hit countries are Thailand, Indonesia, and South Korea.

While Thailand lost territory and subjects to the colonists on all sides, the core of the kingdom persisted and forged its own brand of modernization in political as well as economic spheres.” Thailand’ capital, Bangkok, has emerged as one of the world’s most prominate primate cities. This country’ s economy has grown rapidly during the Pacific Rim boom in the early 1990’s. Only recently has ...

... card or proof of enrolment to get into the best libraries in the world at any time of day. Imagine that we are conducting a group project on, for instance, a hypothetical class trip to Thailand. Our Thai students will probably be able to provide a lot of local information on their home communities, but we also would want the class to visit the best libraries in the world to get more detailed and general information. In addition, we would recommend that a group of students find their way to the Thailand Tourist Office website for information on roads, weather, shopping, and vaccination requirements. Another group should visit some airline websites to get flight schedule and air fare information, and those who want to backpack should probably consult the website of Harvard Let's Go guide on backpacking hints. As a problem-based learning project, our hypothetical class trip to Thailand, requires that students work in collaboration, that they organise and delegate various information gathering tasks among themselves, that they use a range of internet resources and download materials, and finally prepare a group presentation: ...

Though all of these countries have a very mixed cultural base, it is mostly an "Indianized" area.
