"…not only a superb ethnographic account of rural Thai Buddhist practices and beliefs, which the author describes in great detail, but also a major contribution to the theoretical discourse on the study of Thai religion.

"…not only a superb ethnographic account of rural Thai Buddhist practices and beliefs, which the author describes in great detail, but also a major contribution to the theoretical discourse on the study of Thai religion.

…the reading of Monks and Magic became a constant source of inspiration and an unexpected help during my own data collection process.

…One of this new edition’s major improvements [is] the inclusion of Thai script throughout the entire book, (…) a revised glossary, (…) an elaborate index, (…) as well as several new photographs.  

…Terwiel’s study represents one of the best ethnographies of Thai village life ever written."
