Understanding Conflict And Approaching Peace In Southern Thailand
by Imtiyaz Yusuf & Lars Peter Schmidt (Eds.)
About This Book
These eight papers from the September 2006 Bangkok Conference explore the history and direction of the ongoing violence and unrest in Southern Thailand, and the ongoing local and other efforts to effect reconciliation. The historic-political background; local perceptions of disputed or unacceptable policies; the fate of the 2005 National Reconciliation Commission; and religious, identity, cross-border, and international factors are all discussed by scholars and analysts with firsthand experience in Thailand.
This second revised edition published in December 2006 includes two conference addresses by a Muslim and a Buddhist thinker that highlight some of the deeper, "cosmological" aspects of the conflict. Bibliography.
