Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
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).
