Description
Summary:The Central Thai speak the Central Thai (Tai-Shan) dialect of Tai, live in central and southern Thailand, and practice Theravada Buddhism. The Thai name for their country is "M'ang Thai" and their name for themselves is "Khon Thai." This file consists of 27 documents with a time range from roughly 1800-1993. Many of the studies focus on sociocultural change. Eight of these are centered on the village of Bang Chan but geographic and ethnographic surveys of other villages are included. Other topics include changing patterns of land ownership; the impact of economic development on rural-urban relations and politics; an account of a market area; studies of folk religion; monastic organization; the relationship between merit-making and identity formation; Thai cosmology, self, and modernity; education and culture; and love magic.
