The southeastern countries of Asia are a collective array of islands and peninsulas, with various mountainous regions, like Myanmar, and plateaus like the ones near Thailand and Vietnam. The outermost regions of Southeast Asia are encircled by various archipelagos and coral reef structures. The number of people living in Thailand is about 69,279,051 people, according to the most recent calculation of the country's population. The total area of Thailand is approximately 197,256 square miles.

In Chapter 2, Reynolds examines the development of the Tai concept of chumchon (community) and lucidly demonstrates how it is a comparatively new term, appearing in Sarit's policy of Pattana Chumchon (Community Development) in the 1950s.

States rule and communities resist . Tai Lands and Thailand takes a very different view. Using thematic and ethnographic studies from Thailand, Laos, Burma and southern China, the authors describe modern forms of community where state power intersects with markets, livelihoods and aspirations.

Series: ASAA Southeast Asia Publications. Tai Lands and Thailand opens up fresh perspectives on a region in transition, and the discussion promises to inform future studies of contemporary sociality in Southeast Asia. Studies of the Tai world often treat state and community as polar opposites: the state produces administrative uniformity and commercialization while community sustains tradition, local knowledge, and subsistence economy. This assumption leads to the conclusion that the traditional community is undermined by the modern forces of state incorporation and market penetration.

Long regarded as a peripheral state in mainland Southeast Asia, Laos has attracted far less scholarly attention than wealthier and more powerful neighbours like Thailand and Vietnam, however, allowed scholars of Lao studies to make significant contributions to their field, one such being Martin Stuart-Fox, in honour of whom this festschrift has brought together contributions from colleagues, former doctoral students and friends. Call for Papers: Ethnic and Community Identity in Southeast Asia. The deadline for abstract submission for the UC Berkeley-UCLA Southeast Asian Studies Conference is January 20, 2020.

Studies of the Tai world often treat "state" and "community" as polar opposites: the state produces administrative uniformity and commercialization while community sustains tradition, local knowledge, and subsistence economy. This assumption leads to the conclusion that the traditional community is undermined by the modern forces of state incorporation and market penetration. States rule and communities resist.

Tai Lands and Thailand takes a very different view. Using thematic and ethnographic studies from Thailand, Laos, Burma, and southern China, the authors describe modern forms of community where state power intersects with markets, livelihoods, and aspirations. Modern community is not easily created nor is it inevitable, but rapid social and economic change in the Tai world has provided many opportunities for new forms of communal belonging to emerge.

Tai Lands and Thailand opens up fresh perspectives on a region in transition, and the discussion promises to inform future studies of contemporary sociality in Southeast Asia.
