Christopher John Baker (born 1948) is a Thailand-based British writer who has made his home in Bangkok for more than 20 years. He is the co-author of A History of Thailand, Thaksin: The Business of Politics in Thailand, Thailand's Boom and Bust, and Thailand's Crisis, all written with his wife, Dr. Pasuk Phongpaichit. He was the principal writer of the United Nations Development Programme's Thailand Human Development Report 2007: Sufficiency Economy and Human Development, which praised King Bhumibol Adulyadej's self-sufficient economy theory.

In 2010, Chris Baker and his wife Pasuk Phongpaichit published a compilation and translation of the Thai epic poem Khun Chang Khun Phaen. The epic was published in a two volume set, which arranged the story in a narrative form suitable for modern English readers. Copious footnotes and creative illustrations are also included. They have also published a version of their compilation in Thai.
