A fluent and affectionate portrait not only of the city of Bangkok, known to the Thais as 'the city of angels', but also of the dynasty and culture which created it. Cutting through confusion and veiled mystery, Waugh unravels the plots, coups, wars, assassinations, invasions and counter-coups of two hundred years of history as if they were this evening's gossip.
The genius, fascination and enduring vitality of Bangkok is told with Waugh's customary delight in life and sensual appreciation.
'... enough court intrigue, popular uprisings and revolutions to match any Hollywood epic, it's hard to put down ... a must read' The Times
