Times of uncertainty: national policies and international relations under COVID-19 in Southeast-Asia and beyond / Detlef Briesen, Thi Thuy Trang Nguyen, Quang Minh Pham (eds.).  Baden Baden, Germany: Nomos, 2022.

Call no: RA644 C87P96

Since the beginning of the pandemic in Wuhan, China, the world has been looking in particular at South and Southeast Asia, where great successes were initially achieved in 2020. In 2021, however, the situation there has dramatically worsened. The book seeks explanations for this and tries to show how the different successes in combating the pandemic have affected international relations and the internal stability of the affected countries. — Publisher.

A genealogy of bamboo diplomacy: the politics of Thai Dâetente with Russia and China / Jittipat Poonkham.  Canberra, ACT, Australia: Australian National University Press, 2022.

Call no: DS575.5 C5C54

Based on a genealogical approach and multi‑archival research, this book examines three key episodes of Thai détente: Thanat Khoman (1968–71), M.R. Kukrit Pramoj (1975–76), and General Kriangsak Chomanan (1977–80). This transformation was represented in numerous diplomatic/discursive practices, such as ping‑pong diplomacy, petro‑diplomacy, trade and cultural diplomacy, and normal visits. — Publisher.
