The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Thai and English Dictionary identifies parallel English and Thai word lists for over 29,000 objects by means of numbered illustrations, and offers quick reference to their Thai English terms. This completely new addition to the successful Oxford- Duden range of dictionaries reflects the most up-to-date changes in technology, science and medicine, industry and commerce and offers comprehensive coverage of all major fields of reference, including the arts and entertainment, recreation and sport, flora and fauna and typical situations in domestic and everyday life. Also included are specially produced pages on Thai subjects such as Buddhism and architecture. Fully alphabetized indices in both languages refer the reader not only to various subjects and contexts in which a word is used, but also to the correct translation and vocabulary of the entire subject. With no other Thai and English pictorial available at present on the market, the Oxford-Duden Pictorial Thai and English Dictionary is an essential resource for everyone from the beginning student to the seasoned speaker.

Since c1970, Thailand's position in the world has changed from potential communist 'domino' to one of the world's most dynamic economies. The confrontational politics of the 1970s, with the student-led revolution of 1973 and the bloody right-wing backlash In 1976, were replaced by a new consensus in the following decade, A concerted export drive sparked off a tremendous economic boom during the 1980s and early 1990s. Tourism also expanded rapidly, and is now the single largest foreign exchange earner. Economic Success has, however, been at a cost. Each year Bangkok has become more chaotic in the face of increased traffic and an Unprecedented building boom, and nationally there has been a widening gap between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots'. Moreover, Thailand is experiencing a potential AIDS time-bomb and serious environmental degradation. Despite Such pressures, and the sudden economic crisis of mid-1997, Thailand has enjoyed an enviable record of stability in recent years.

Was wäre, wenn der zweite Weltkrieg anders ausgegangen wäre? Wenn ein grausames, totalitäres Regime die Weltherrschaft an sich reißen wollte? Würden wir brav unser armseliges Leben in Zone 7 leben, bei den Ratten und Fliegen, in ständiger Angst vor den Ledermantelmännern? Würden wir vor der Fahne des Mutterlands strammstehen, wie die Musterschüler mit ihren langen Hosen und ordentlich gebundenen Schlipsen? Oder würden wir wie Standish Treadwell, der Junge mit den verschiedenfarbigen Augen, unseren ganz eigenen Weg gehen?
