Thai Politics: Between democracy and its discontents

9 August 2016

After two coups, a decade of political strife and this week’s referendum vote in favour of further military involvement in government, Thai politics deserves serious analysis, grounded in facts and marked by rich cultural interpretation. In this co-authored volume, Daniel H. Unger and Chandra Mahakanjana describe the contested ground of the country’s democratic possibilities. They present a sophisticated and conceptually worthwhile analysis that also asks probing questions about the nature of 21st century politics.
