Found at Bangkok Airport

 A key source of academic books in Thailand is Asia Books, which has branches all over Thailand. Its outlets at Bangkok Airport (Suvarnabhumi) are especially frequented by foreign scholars passing through.

One such scholar returning from a trip to Burma/Myanmar and caught on camera at Suvarnabhumi earlier this week was Mikael Gravers. (Note how carefully he is not staring at the prominent place in the bookshop given to his Exploring Ethnic Diversity in Burma, published back in 2007 by NIAS Press.)

Part of Mikael's recent trip was to collect material on a new book that he is editing with Flemming Ytzen. Aimed not just at scholars but also journalists, NGOs, businesses, policy-makers, etc., this tightly focused volume analyses the changes sweeping the country and their implications. We look forward to bringing this out into the world in February-March.
