This atlas portrays Thailand's social anad economic development within a geographical context. The Kingdom of Thailand has undergone many changes throughout its long history, most recently during its vigorous growth from the middle of the 1980s. This volume interprets Thailand's internal dynamics as well as its integration at the regional and global levels.
This is the first atlas of its kind for Thailand. It includes a wide range of maps and spatial information using various computer-assisted techniques. Seventy plates of maps, accompanied with commentary, cover significant topics such as Thailand's role in the world system, its place in Eastern Asia, and its population, infrastructure, urban network, production, income, education, and intra-regional dynamics.
The volume brings together expert information from a variety of fields. It will be a valuable tool for teachers, students, planners, and entrepreneurs.
