Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of Thailand, then pay attention....

Did you know that Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia that a European power has not colonized? 

Thailand has seen its fair share of struggles. Today, the Thai government struggles to find its place in the world, oscillating between democracy and authoritarian regimes. Even though its name translates to “Land of the Free”, it seems the country has some trouble living up to that name. This captivating guide to the Thai people and their history details the interesting events that led the country to where it is today. In this book, you will learn about the country’s rich history, from when the first people settled the land hundreds of thousands of years ago to its modern-day role in the world. Although Thailand’s prehistory and early rulers are discussed in the book, the book focuses more on Thailand’s history after 1238, as this was the year the people broke free of the oppressive Khmer rule and adopted the name “Thai”, which means “Free”. 

Learn how a country whose history is marked mostly by absolute monarchies and military dictatorships prides itself on its freedom. 

In this audiobook, you will discover: 

  • Thailand’s prehistory and early rulers
  • The liberation from the Khmer Empire
  • Thailand’s golden age under the Sukhothai
  • The powerful Ayutthaya Kingdom
  • The Chakri dynasty, which still rules Thailand today
  • 20th-century coups and rebellions
  • And much more!

So if you want to learn more about the history of Thailand, scroll up and buy now.
