Hesse-Wartegg, Ernsf von: Siam, das Reich des weisscn Elephanten
Siam, Reich des weissen Elephanten, gehüllt in geheimnisvolles Dunkel— so wurde das europäische Publikum im 19. Jahrhundert mit dem hinterindischen Königreich bekannt gemacht. Ernst von Hesse-Wartegg ein bekannter Reiseschriftsteller der Wilhelminisdien Aera, gibt ein anschauliches, zuweilen kurioses Bild Siams. Ganz den Erwartungen seiner kolonialbegeisterten Leser entsprechend, verbindet er seine pragmatische Beurteilung des Landes nach deutschen Interessen und exotisches coufeur locale zu einer "imaginaeren Landes- und Völkerkunde".
