Researched from a diverse and extensive source materials (including directories, documents in city archives, newspapers, fieldnotes, postcards, etc.) Unseen Siam. Early Photography 1860-1910 reveals the careers of 15 lesser-unknown early photographers who worked in Siam, many of whom became court photographer to the then ruling King of Siam. Their work was not only restricted to their photographic cartes-de-visite, as is usually the case, but also large sized images from attributable albums and portfolios. Each reproduced photograph is fully catalogued and thus in many cases discloses the name of the photographer of some otherwise well-known images for the first time.

The recorded history of precolonial Burmese empire and the modern state of Myanmar starts with the kingdom of Bagan in the 11th century. The oldest surviving written records and structures are from the reign of King Anawrahta (1044–1077).

Anawrahta is a folk hero to this day in Myanmar and is widely credited as a charismatic and pious leader who consolidated various ethnic groups throughout the region into a single nation. The Wheel-Turner and His House traces the archaeological and historical record of Anawrahta and his seminal position in forming modern Myanmar, based on the few s...

In the Shadow of Angkor

  • Categories: Art

On June 6, 1913, George Groslier, a twenty-six year old French explorer, set out with a small group of native porters on a six-month trek in the Cambodian wilderness. A millennium earlier, the Khmer empire had ruled the entire region. In the 15th century, however, the kingdom mysteriously collapsed, with dense jungle quickly covering its fabulous temples. The French government charged Groslier with documenting the most remote edifices of the Khmer legacy - among them Preah Vihear, Wat Phu, Beng Melea and Banteay Chhmar - sites that remain isolated even a century later. This modern edition - enhanced with 75 period illustrations and detailed appendices - offers readers the first English trans...

Soldier Pigs

During the 1950s, one special army quartermaster group was assigned the difficult but essential task of testing potential army materials—tests that often required putting soldiers at risk, challenging them at the top of their physical endurance, under the worst possible conditions. Like guinea pigs, these randomly chosen soldiers were forced to participate in dangerous testing programs, so that others could benefit. This is the true but untold story of one of those soldiers, author Gordon Swanson. Soldier Pigs describes many of the author's tasks—from equipment and machinery tests in the extreme heat of Death Valley, to the frigid cold near the Arctic Circle, and his many other experiences as part of this unique military unit.The author was subjected to surprising ordeals as a guinea pig, and almost killed several times; still, he believes that the work of these men may have saved the lives of many others in the military. His graphic descriptions give the reader the utmost respect for the valuable work of these soldiers.
