9781783600571: A Kingdom in Crisis: Thailand's Struggle for Democracy in the Twenty-first Century

Struggling to emerge from a despotic past, and convulsed by an intractable conflict that will determine its future, Thailand stands at a defining moment in its history. Scores have been killed on the streets of Bangkok. Freedom of speech is routinely denied. Democracy appears increasingly distant. Long dreaded by Thais, the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej is expected to unleash even greater instability. Yet in spite of the impact of the crisis, and the extraordinary importance of the royal succession, they have never been comprehensively analyzed, because Thailand's draconian lese majeste law has silenced most discussion - until now. Veteran foreign correspondent Andrew MacGregor Marshall is the only journalist covering contemporary Thailand who has taken the decision to break Thai law and tell the whole story. In this book he provides a comprehensive explanation that makes sense of the crisis for the first time, revealing the unacknowledged succession conflict that has become entangled with the struggle for democracy in Thailand. Besides shedding light on Thailand's divisions, Marshall provides the only detailed discussion of the looming succession available in the public domain. It is essential reading for anybody wanting to know what is happening in 21st century Thailand, and what the future holds.

Revue de presse :

'An explosive analysis that lays bare what the Thai elite has tried to keep hidden for decades. A clear-eyed view of what is really at stake in Thailand's continuing turmoil.'
David Streckfuss, author of Truth on Trial in Thailand: Defamation, Treason, and Lèse-Majesté.

'A timely and highly readable account of the grim political reality of the "Land of Smiles". An essential primer for every visitor.'
Joe Studwell, author of Asian Godfathers and How Asia Works

'Andrew MacGregor Marshall has written perhaps the best introduction yet to the roots of Thailand's present political impasse, He explains how an aspect of the crisis whose importance many analysts in Thailand and overseas have an interest in minimising--the looming succession in the Thai royal family--is in fact central. A brilliant book that could perhaps have been written only by somebody who knows Thailand so well he knew he had to leave the country to write it.'
Simon Long, Banyan Columnist, The Economist

'Finally someone says the unsayable. A must-read for observers of Thai politics'
Pavin Chachavalpongpun, associate professor at Centre for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University

'A brilliant, incisive rewriting of Thailand's history and monarchy. An instant classic that promises to permanently change the conversation, both inside and outside the country.'
--Christine Gray, anthropologist and pioneering analyst of Thailand's monarchy
