Item description for A Brief History of Lan Na: Civilizations of North Thailand by Hans Penth...
Lan Na is the name of a conglomerate of Thai city-states that covered roughly the area of modern north Thailand between the 13th and 16th centuries. Mostly under the leadership of the city-state of Chiang Mai, Lan Na's influence reached far into the neighboring regions. Beginning with popular legends, this wide-ranging narrative takes us from prehistoric and proto-historic periods up to the present day. This brief and highly readable volume is a welcome step towards developing a fuller history of northern Thailand.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Brief History of Lan Na: Civilizations of North Thailand?
Very disappointing Sep 6, 2004
The "book" turns out to be a very small booklet with some brief historical content on Northern Thailand that is written as a rather boring history professor would write it. I can't beleive I was suckered into buying a booklet for 10 dollars. When they say brief...they really mean brief....buyer beware
