The birth of the EFEO–Silkworm Series

Trasvin Jittidecharak

UNLIKE MANY OTHER BOOK SERIES, the EFEO-Silkworm Series was not initiated by a group of academics and scholars in a particular fi eld aiming to study a certain subject and then encouraging contributions, nor did it spring purely from commercial interests. The EFEO-Silkworm Series is a collection of English translations of works fi rst published in French.
