Item description for History of Lan Na by Saratsawadi Ongsakun, Dolina W. Millar & Sandy Barron...
Here, for the first time since the Yonok Chronicle was written more than a century ago, is a complete history of the northern Thai culture and kingdom of Lan Na. History of Lan Na chronicles the era of the city-states before the rule of Phaya Mangrai, the rise, flourishing, and decline of the Lan Na kingdom, the period of Burmese rule, the submission to Siamese authority, the impact of Western imperialism, and finally Lan Nas integration with the rest of the country.
Sarassawadee Ongsakul has constructed a complete chronology of Lan Nas social, economic, and political development. The Thai language publication has already been recognized as an important contribution to the study of Lan Na history and, now in English, it will take its place as an essential work on Thai studies in the international arena.
