  16. 16. Technology and Science from1767 until the present<br />Current Technology and Science keeps on going and going…….<br /> About 24 percent of the population of Thailand is classified as undernourished by the World Bank. This means they do not receive adequate nutrition in their diet. Almost all of the population (94 percent) has adequate access to sanitation. Of children under the age of five, about one-quarter are underweight, and nearly 22 percent are stunted (short for their age).<br />Despite malnourishment, Thailand is the world&apos;s largest rice exporter, accounting for over 22 percent of all agricultural exports by value in 1997. It also provides about 95 percent of the world&apos;s cassava (tapioca) exports. The government, however, has initiated large-scale irrigation projects, introduced higher-yielding varieties of rice, and encouraged mountain villagers to grow coffee, apples, strawberries, and other crops in an effort to increase exports and compete in the global market.<br />

Chiang Mai, TH: Yale University Press<br /> <br /> The now deceased author, former Department Chairman at Cornell University Department of History for 33 years, used data from his personal library collection of over 15,000 Southeast Asia volumes, personal data accumulated from his numerous trips to Southeast Asia and relied heavily on various scholars to bring together a chronologically cohesive look at the current area known today as Thailand. His terse book looks at the lands from 40,000 BCE until the present and is jam packed full of carefully researched facts pertaining to how Thailand came to be the Thailand we all see today. I’ve used data found in chapter 6, The Early Bangkok Empire, 1767-1853, to chapter 11, Fresh Starts, 1976-2002 to help me get an understanding of technology and science from 1767 up to the present.<br /> <br />Gallucci, R.
