Back of the Book

The book develops two major themes. The first theme attempts to understand the sources of value orientation of the Thai people, and their individual and group behaviour. To this end the study examines three major value systems and their institutions, as well as their mutual relationship and interaction.

As the first value system, the study examines the Theravada Buddhism as founded by the Buddha, then focuses on its application in Thailand, on Buddhist ethics and morality, on the conflicts between some aspects of Buddhism and the rapidly changing society and, finally, on various movements attempting to reform Buddhism in that country.

As the second major value system, the study examines the role Thai people, their symbolism, and their fusion with Buddhism and its values and institutions at the grassroot level of the society.

As the third value system, the study discusses various theories which attempt to explain the psych-cultural values and attitudes of the Thai people, how these interact with Buddhism and animism, and how they add another dimension to the already complex patter of social behaviour.

These three value systems interact and define the parameters within which all aspects of the national life - political, cultural, economic and others - are actualized.

The second major theme of he book concentrates on the position of women in Thailand. It begins with the explanation of the attitudes which the Buddha himself held towards the women, examines the status of women in early Buddhist societies and of those women who chose to renounce the world and join the Buddhist Order to seek personal salvation, as well as the role of the lay women in a Buddhist society at that time. The book then various stages of its history, and culminates in the discussion of the legal position of women today and the attempts to improve their status. However, in treating the latter subject the study is descriptive rather than prescriptive, leaving it to the Thai women themselves to decide which to pursue to improve their position.

Introduction

Thailand has been a subject of great scholarly interest in the recent years. The reasons is that the country is successfully combining the traditional values, and values of Theravada Buddhism, with elements of modernity-a synthesis of the old and the new. This enables the country to preserve a strong sense of the Thai national identity, while making a significant progress in its efforts to modernize the country and improve the well-being of its people.

Although, when living in Burma, had the opportunity to visit Thailand many times, my own interest in the study of Thailand became highlighted during my Sabbatical leave spent at Burapha University in Chonburi in 1993-1994.

The book develops two major themes. The first theme attempts to understand the sources of value orientation of the Thai people, and their individual and group behavior. To this end the study examines three major value systems and their institutions, as well as their mutual relationship and interaction.

As the first value system, the study examines the Theravada Buddhism as founded by the Buddha, then focuses on its application in Thailand, on Buddhist ethics and morality, on the conflicts between some aspects of Buddhism and the rapidly changing society and, finally, on various movements attempting to re-form Buddhism in that country.

As the second major value system, the study examines the role which animism and the spirit worship lay in the daily life of the Thai people, their symbolism, and their fusion with Buddhism and its values and institutions at the grassroot level of the society.

As the third value system, the study discusses various theories which attempt to explain to explain the psycho-cultural values and attitudes of the Thai people, how these interact with Buddhism and animism, and how they add another dimension to the already complex of social Behaviour.

These three value systems interact and define the parameters within which all aspects of the national life- political, cultural, economic and others - are actualized.

The second major theme of the book concentrates on the position of women in Thailand. It begins with the explanation of the attitudes, which the Buddha him-self held towards the women, examines the status of women in early Buddhist societies and of those women who chose to renounce the world and join the Buddhist Order to seek personal salvation, as well as the role of the lay women in a Buddhist society at that time. The book then focuses on the position of women in the Thai society through various stages of its history, and culminates in the discussion of the legal position of women today and the attempts to improve their status. However, in treating the latte subject the study is descriptive rather than prescriptive, leaving it to the Thai women themselves to decide which remedies to pursue to improve their position.

The study originated during the field work at Burapha University, Thailand, undertaken during my Sabbatical leave from the teaching and administrative responsibilities at Niagara College, Welland, Canada, between 1993-1994.

The original incarnation of this study was a modest research project entitled the Changing Values and Attitudes of Female University Students in Thailand: a Comparative Study of Female Students at Burapha University, Payap University, Chachoengsao College and the Ram Bhai Barni College.

The purpose of the project was to study the interaction between the traditional Thai religious and cultural values, in which the student have been socialized in their homes, with the values of modern social sciences, business practices and technology, which the students were being exposed to at the universities and colleges.

Moreover, the study was interested in finding what goals the young women have set for themselves to achieve in life, and what role they wished to play in nation building as wives and mothers, professional women and citizens exercising their democratic rights, and to measure their concerns for the prevailing social problems, particularly those affecting women in Thailand.

Finally, in order to ascertain variable data for comparative purposes, the participating institutions have been selected, in a representative sample, from the urban and rural settings, from northern and southern regions of the country, from institutions of different sizes and different curricula. For example, Payap is a Christian university in Chiang Mai servicing students from tribal areas, where the values and attitudes of students are quite different from those elsewhere.

While a fairly comprehensive questionnaire has been developed and administered and the obtained data computerized and processed from some of the participating institutions, the work on inquiry in order to understand better the traditional values of the Thai female students which, eventually, resulted in the present book. However, it is my hope that I will be able to return soon to the original project on the changing values and attitudes of female students at selected universities and colleges in Thailand.

The initial scope of my research was even broader in its initial stage, and it concerned itself with the role of women in the developmental process in selected countries of South East Asia. Some of this work was carried out in Singapore, where I was a Visiting Research Scholar associated with the Centre for Advanced Studies of the national University of Singapore in 1993, which facilitated my access to the extensive collections of research material at the university library, as well as at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies. I am grateful and acknowledge the assistance of Dr. Chin Kin Wah, Director of the Centre, and many professors at the National University of Singapore, who so generously gave their time to meet with me to discuss the project.

In Thailand, I express my gratitude to Burapha University, in Chonburi, for providing me with appropriate facilities. My sincere thanks are extended to Dr. Banchong Chantrasa, Vice-President Administration, for his counsel and support; Dr. Kunawudh Konchalard, Vice-President Academic, of his administrative support; Dr. Charan Chakandang, Vice- Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, for helping with the question-naire and for extending many other courtesies; Mr. Somsak Aeamkongrsi, Chief of Planning Division, for recognizing the value of such research; Mr. Serree Chinodom Director, Computer Centre for excellent work in processing the data; Professor virat Karavapittayakula, Dean, Faculty of Science, of his support; Professor Korblarp Tanskul, Head of Department of English and Foreign Language, for translating the questionnaire from Thai to English; Professor Chirawibha Pongruang, for helping with fine tuning the questionnaire and translating students' comments; and Mr. Sompoch Chuenpreecha, for the many courtesies extended to me during my stay at Burapha. My sincere gratitude to all those professors at Burapha who invited me o give lectures and lead seminars in their classes, and to many other for their hospitality and numerous acts of friendship.

Thank you very much for the courtesy you showed me for the time I buy my books. The last book is a good book. İt is important in terms of recognizing fine art of İndia.

Yesterday I received my lost and through you again found order. Very quickly I must say !. Thank you and thank you again for your service. I am very happy with this double CD of Ustad Shujaat Husain Khan. I thought it was lost forever and now I can add it to my CD collection. I hope in the near future to buy again at your online shop. You have wonderful items to offer !

I recently ordered a hand embroidered stole. It was expensive and I was slightly worried about ordering it on line. It has arrived and is magnificent. I couldn't be happier, I will treasure this stole for ever. Thank you.
