Item description for A Resounding Failure: Martin and the French in Siam, 1672-1693 (Treasures from the Past) by Michael Smithies, Valentina Mignao, Michael Adams, Willemien Du Plessis, Amanda Kennedy, K. B. Tan & S. Cao...

Initially seeking converts and trade, the French presence in 17th-century Siam turned into a classic colonial adventure, with troops sent to occupy, by force if necessary, the most important ports of Bangkok and Mergui. Francois Martin, from his unique viewpoint as director of the French trading outpost at Pondichery on the coast of India, provides a careful analysis of the motives of the persons involved in the French colonizing venture. Michael Smithies has skillfully translated and assembled all the references to Siam from "Martin's Memoirs", linking the segments with his own knowledgeable commentary to present a detailed picture of the unfolding tragedy.
