New Perspectives in Southeast Asian Studies
New Perspectives in Southeast Asian Studies publishes academic books that focus on historical and contemporary problems in this dynamic region, from local issues through global interconnections. While the series as a whole covers cultural, economic, environmental, political, and social issues, individual titles aspire to the fine-grained research and theoretical innovation long associated with scholarship on Southeast Asia. Editorial work is a collaborative effort between the University of Wisconsin Press and the University’s Center for Southeast Asian Studies, a National Resource Center that has promoted the study of this region for forty years.

Wealth, Class, and Monarchy in Thailand
“This book is critical reading for anyone interested in how Thailand’s monarchy has survived to become not only the preeminent actor in politics but the largest economic force in Thailand and one of the wealthiest actors in the world. Unchanam’s account of a monarchy coming back from the brink is a powerful and persuasive one.”
