Singapore. Didier Millet. 2007. Stock ID #118042
Filled with colour as well as black and white photographic illustrations, appendices, chronology, index, chart of The House of Chakri in pocket at rear of book, square quarto, dustjacket. This new edition of The King of Thailand in World Focus has been expanded, and completely redesigned and reformatted. It includes foreign coverage of the intervening years during which King Bhumibol became the world's longest reigning living monarch. The period has not been plain sailing by any means - the dramatic royal intervention in May 1992 to end political chaos and bloodshed is still dramatically etched on the world's collective imagination. The tense political standoff of 2006, when Thai politicians once again grappled with the fine print of constitutional democracy, ended in September with a bloodless military putsch.
