Creation in 1969 of a Scandinavian field research station near Lampang in northern Thailand was a gamble. With war spreading from Vietnam into Laos and Cambodia and a communist insurgency growing in Thailand, some scholars feared being compromised by Cold War schemes. Yet for five years a large number of Nordic and other scholars undertook research based here, significant initiatives being made in archaeology, folklore, linguistics, etc. Following its closure in 1974, a volume was published showcasing this research but had a limited circulation. The situation is remedied by this new edition, which considers the research station in its time and offers insights into the changes sweeping higher education today.
