Americans in Thailand: New Book Features Insight on the Lyman Family and Other Prominent Expats

Editions Didier Millet

Sponsored by Tilleke & Gibbins, Americans in Thailand, a fascinating account of Americans’ impact on Thailand over the past two centuries, has been published by Editions Didier Millet. From delving into an American’s role in Thailand’s first-ever surgery, to a graduate student who unwittingly discovered an ancient civilization, to the Lyman family’s influential contributions to charity and the country’s legal market, this book illustrates in a manner both profound and surprising the impression left by American people on Thailand in the following periods of time:

  • Pioneering Americans (1818-1851)
  • Divided Americans (1851-1868)
  • Distinguished Americans (1868-1945)
  • Quiet Americans (1945-1957)
  • Armed Americans (1957-1976)
  • Committed Americans (1976-2014)

David Lyman, Chairman and Chief Values Officer of Tilleke & Gibbins, was invited to author the foreword for the book.

Editions Didier Millet is an internationally-renowned publisher of travel, history, natural history, art, architecture, cookery, and lifestyle books. If you would like to learn more about Americans in Thailand, a review of the book can be found on the Bangkok Post website.
