From start to finish, this is a classic example of the synergy of clear, thoughtful text, superb photography, and clean, attractive book design. Since most non-Thais have little knowledge of the Thai history or culture, Van Beek carefully covers the history of Thai art from the Bronze Age to the present, paying particular attention to the Buddhist influence of the last 700 years. Scores of rich, well-printed photos examine Thai sculpture, architecture, and mural painting. Despite the relative paucity of material on Thailand's superb ceramics and a skimpy coverage of 19th- and 20th-century art, this is the best single volume on Thai art history around. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.ADavid McClelland, Philadelphia
