Item description for Dutch Perceptions of the Thai Court of Ayutthaya, Ca. 1604-1765 (Tanap Monographs on the History of Asian-European Interaction) by Bhawan Ruangsilp, Mark W. Lehman, Debra Harmon Gentene, R. F. Keep & F. P. Huang...
This study focuses on the perceptions of the merchants of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) of the Thai royal court during their extended residence in Ayutthaya. Basing herself on a wealth of Dutch primary sources, the author shows how trade, politics and diplomacy shaped a unique relationship based on 'partnership' and a 'sense of differences'. The book contributes to expanding the study of Ayutthaya's history-known for its scarcity of indigenous sources- with the help of contemporary Dutch views.
