Titre : The Thaksinization of Thailand (Hardback)

Éditeur : NIAS Press, Denmark

Date d'édition : 2005

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Prior to the 1997 economic crisis, for around 20 years Thai politics was characterized by a pluralistic political order, featuring unstable coalition governments, competing interests, and a gradual displacement of bureaucratic and military influence by the rising power of elected politicians (who in turn were closely linked to a range of business actors). A major reform package was enacted in 1997, coinciding with the promulgation of a new constitution. However, the country s financial problems helped create the conditions for the emergence of the Thai Rak Thai (Thais love Thai, or TRT) Party under the leadership of Thaksin Shinawatra, a fabulously wealthy telecommunications magnate often compared with Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi. Although presenting itself as a nationalist, transformative party, at heart TRT is little more than a vehicle for the interests and ambitions of its founder-leader. Since winning a landslide election victory in January 2001, Prime Minister Thaksin has exercised an extraordinary degree of personal dominance over the Thai political scene. The emergence of Thaksin and TRT has transformed Thailand s electoral landscape, rendering previous analyses of Thai politics substantially outdated. This book examines Thaksin s background, his business activities, the emergence of Thai Rak Thai, his relationship with the military, Thaksin s use of rhetoric through media such as radio, his wider political economy networks, and the future direction of Thai politics.
