Sirote Klampaiboon is an independent scholar known for his erudite analyses of current events and political insight. A graduate from the University of Hawaii, Sirote is now teaching Southeast Asian studies and human rights issues at several universities. He also co-hosts a morning programme on Voice TV, in which he discusses everything from politics to movies and cultural going-ons. 

This month Sirote has released a book, a translation of Indian philosopher Amartya Sen's Identity And Violence (Attalak Lae Kwam Roon Raeng), a lucid study of sociological and political phenomena spanning everything from poverty, freedom, identity, and the tendency of extremism. We ask Sirote what is on his bookshelf right now.
