Abstract: This document presents an ethnographic study of the central Thai people based on three representative villages or TAMBONS -- Thap Nam, Ban Chung, and Khayai. All three of these villages are located in Ayutthaya Province and are typical of the rural life and rural enterprise found on the central plain of Thailand. Similarities and differences between these villages are noted throughout the text in reference to such topics as the political and social organization of the village community, households and life styles, community leadership and associations, land tenure, farming and farm production, livestock raising and cottage industries, marketing, family income and expenditure, labor utilization, and the development of various socio-cultural trends in the society. The data which have been meticulously gathered and analyzed, are summarized in a massive number of tables and charts at the end of the source (HRAF pp. 263-408).
