    The Pattaya Phenomenon—Effects of the Vietnam War on the Development of Pattaya is a detailed evaluation about the process how a place located along Pattaya Bay could develop in a short period of time from a small, quiet fishing village with a pristine beach and crystal clear sea water into the sex metropolis of the planet.

    Little real facts are known about the beginnings of Pattaya as a tourist destination and the transition from a small fishing community to a mega-sex city.

    The most told legend is that Pattaya was the main R&R (rest and recuperation) center or destination for US warriors fighting the war in Vietnam, from where they were flown over to Thailand and flocked in crowds to Pattaya. This work will disprove the mythos and will determine the real facts that happened at the place during the Vietnam War period.

    Thailand, however, was indeed a key strategic base of US activities in the region during the Vietnam War and the mythos of R&R US military culture had some important effects to tourism after 1975, and attributed to the boom in this business segment in Thailand in general and in Pattaya in particular.

    Today, sex still sells and Pattaya has become one of the most visited cities in the world, with almost 10 million international and 8 million domestic visitors in 2018. Furthermore, Pattaya still is an unreal and fictitious place, a unique locality that could only evolve out of a specific social phenomenon that was caused by historic events, politics and behaviors of others.

    This study will determine the facts and causes that influenced Pattaya’s progress and will throw some light on the interactions of interracial behaviors. The text is supported with plenty of illustrations.

  • Origin of the Tai People, Volume 8―Early Tai Kingdoms of the BC Period

    Origin of the Tai People 8―Early Tai Kingdoms of the BC Period gives detailed information about the current academic knowledge of the various states that were established and governed by ethnic Tai people in the region of modern China, a long time before the first Han Chinese entered the area.
    Alone with the deciphering of the human DNA we are now in a position to know more precisely about our own biogenesis and about our migration routes within the territory of East Asia and mainland Southeast Asia.
    Today it is generally accepted that the populations inhabiting southern China and most parts of the eastern lands between the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers in the 2nd and 3rd millennia BC and before spoke languages that were not related to Chinese and the early principal states or kingdoms in this region were often conglomerations of distinct ethnic peoples under the leadership of a politically dominant ethnic group.
    This work is part of the discussion about the achievements of the Tai people in their ancient seats before the ethnic Han Chinese appeared in their various habitats in much later times of history and established their first Chinese Empire in 221 BC.

  • Origin of the Tai People 6―Northern Tai-Speaking People of the Red River Delta and Their Habitat Today

    Origin of the Tai People 6―Northern Tai-Speaking People of the Red River Delta and Their Habitat Today explains the involvement of Tai-Kadai people in the early history of modern Vietnam, especially their early presence in the Red River Delta.

    A number of modern scholars propose that the ancient Yue people, who inhabited at the end of the 1st millennium BC this region, included not only Yue proper, but the majority of this group were in fact Tai-Kadai-speaking people, who in turn were genetically linked with the aboriginal Austronesians of ancient Taiwan.

    Origin of the Tai People 5―Cradle of the Tai People and the Ethnic Setup Today deals with the early homeland (or ‘Urheimat’) of the Tai people and the contemporary ethnic makeup of the area. New evidence emerged across various academic disciplines that the people who spoke Tai-Kadai languages at the time in history when the first Han Chinese moved southwards across the Yangtze River never spread across the vast southern Chinese region but were concentrated in the more concluded (and mountainous) area of modern provinces of Guangxi, Guizhou, Guangdong and Hunan of southern China as well as the adjoining modern provinces Ha Giang, Cao Bang Lang Son and Quang Ninh of Northeast Vietnam, even extending into the Red River Valley as we now know.

    Origin of the Tai People 4―Ethnic Descent of the Tai-Kadai People describes the latest academic hypothesis on the ancient forefathers of the Tai people. Those ancient forebears, named pre-Austronesians, migrated from the area of the mid-Huang He Valley (or mid-Yellow River Valley) of modern northeastern China southward into the Yangtze River Delta of eastern China, and followed the coastal route to the Fujian coast of southeastern China.

  • Early Port Cities in the Malay Peninsula

    Early Port Cities in the Malay Peninsula gives most recent discovered information about the historical spread of Indian (or better Tamil) culture from southern India across the Bay of Bengal to the Malay Peninsula and from there to other parts of mainland Southeast Asia (Funan, Champa, Chenla and Dvaravati) and finally to maritime Southeast Asia.

    As this work will show, it was not an Indianization but a Tamilization, since the ethnic Tamil people of the southernmost region of India played the active part to transfer their religious and cultural traits from their homeland to Southeast Asia.

    Chanthaburi City—An Ancient, Multiethnic and Significant Municipality in Southeastern Thailand is a work about the little but pretty city of Chanthaburi, located in southern part of East Thailand, which has a long and ancient history and is populated by a distinct mix of peoples and cultures.
