Synopsis

The Chiang Mai Chronicle by David K. Wyatt

For seven centuries, Chiang Mai has been the center of a lively culture and civilization in the hills of what is now northern Thailand. The Chiang Mai Chronicle, one of the most important histories of the region, was written in 1827 to explain the growth and strength of the Kingdom of Lan Na which Chiang Mai dominated, and to foresee a glorious future after a generation of warfare. This translation of The Chiang Mai Chronicle was prepared from a palm-leaf manuscript. Extensive indexes and annotations have been added, and maps have been drawn especially for this edition.David Wyatt is the John Stambaugh Professor of History at Cornell University, and Aroonrut Wichienkeeo teaches at Chiang Mai Rajabhat Insitute.
