Item description for Village Vignettes: Portraits of a Thai Village by Michael Smithies...

A series of "portraits" of the people who comprise the mosaic of a typical north-eastern Thai village, this text describes such characters as "the half-Chinese", "the fortune teller", "Miss cotton bud", "native entrepreneur" and "bar boy". Interspersed between these portraits are "themes", such as gambling, Songkran, electricity and noise, providing an informative overview of the background, activities and infrastructure of village life. The sum of these vignettes, based on the author's keen observations while living in the village, is an image of the constant struggle between traditional village values and the often disruptive influences of modern technology and mores.
