Siam Becomes Thailand: A Story of Intrigue
Hurst, 1991 - 394 pages
Since the end of the absolute monarchy in Siam in 1932, the country has seemed to lurch from one military coup to another despite the democratic ideals proclaimed by the men who established the first constitutional government. Just how the military came to play such a dominant role in Thai politics is the main theme of this book. But it also looks at the nebulous period during World war II when Thailand fought a little-known war against the French in Indo-China and then aligned itself with Japan, declaring war on Britain and the United States.
