Author Timothy E. Boyajian takes readers on an equally insightful and unforgettable journey and adventure through parts of Asia in his book, PASSAGE THROUGH BANGKOK. This volume is aimed at providing readers with insights and understanding of the rapidly modernizing people of Asia, specifically Southeast Asia, which has dynamic cultures and people that make the place worth exploring.
Countries like Thailand and Cambodia have long histories that have earned them ancient traditions and rich cultures. As the author, Boyajian creates a book in a form of chronicles derived from over 700 pages of journal notes written during the course of his journey—notes that preserve his feelings and reactions to every situation he was in. This book gives readers a unique view of the world untainted by political forces or persuasion from interest groups. From the thrill of adventure to the intrigues of spies and dangers of war and disease, this book will open the portal to a completely new world.
Part one of this book deals with the author's initial encounters in Bangkok and then moves on to his work in a Cambodian refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodian border. Part two concerns his trials and tribulations in Bangkok after returning from the border. His experiences in the city evolved into a slowly maturing worldly view of the realities of international politics in Southeast Asia. The book also gives readers a glimpse of the suffering that war brings to people in terms of poverty, disease and hunger.

About the Author
Tim Boyajian was born on February 22, 1949, the son of first generation Armenian Americans. He grew up in the agricultural community of Fresno, Calif. where he experienced the appreciation of the outdoors and nature. He was imbued with a sense of adventure and travel from early childhood and dreamed of living or working in far off tropical places. His first taste of leaving American was with the marines in Vietnam in 1970. When he returned to America his enhanced vision to help the poor in the tropical regions of the world had inspired him to return to study in the medical sciences. After graduation with a degree in Biology from the University of California at Irvine, he furthered his studies at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Public Health with specialization in Infectious and Tropical Disease Epidemiology. The most remarkable event of those graduate years was his opportunity to serve as a Consultant Parasitologist in 1978 with the South Pacifi c Commission where he spent two months working on projects on the far off islands of Niue and Vanuatu (formerly the New Hebrides).
