Thailand Unhinged 2.0

I am happy to announce the publication of a new edition of the book Thailand Unhinged, which was first released around this time last year. Below is a preview of the new Foreword, detailing the changes that were made for the purposes of this new edition. In a nutshell, the changes can be summarized in three words: un(self)censored, expanded, and revised.
Because I imagine that those most interested in this new edition are the same people who bought (or otherwise read) the first, I made a serious attempt to add at least some value to each chapter. This involved much more than changing a few commas here and there; it took perhaps a couple of months to take the old book apart and put it back together, mixing in a good deal of new material. The changes were substantial enough to give the book a new subtitle, which sums up my interpretation of the events that have taken place in the intervening time.
Compared to last year’s release, this new edition should be much easier to get if you live in Asia. The Kindle version is already available for download, while the iBooks version for iPad and iPhone should be shortly. Print versions can be purchased from Amazon as well as a wealth of other online book retailers. For those who have trouble with those retailers’ international shipping policies, the book can also be ordered through Equinox Publishing, which is based in Southeast Asia.
Once again, great thanks to Equinox Publishing for this opportunity. Aside from offering me a chance to publish these two editions of Thailand Unhinged (and to do so without any unnecessary delay), Equinox has given me the freedom to approach my work as a craft. I wish publishing were always this rewarding and enjoyable.
