The Thai monarchy today is usually presented as both guardian of tradition and the institution to bring modernity and progress to the Thai people. It is moreover seen as protector of the nation.
Scrutinizing that image, this volume reviews the fascinating history of the modern monarchy. It also analyses important cultural, historical, political, religious, and legal forces shaping the popular image of the monarchy and in particular of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Thus, the book offers valuable insights into the relationships between monarchy, religion and democracy in Thailand – topics that after the September 2006 coup d’état, gained renewed national and international interest.
Addressing such contentious issues as Thai-style democracy, lése majesté legislation, religious symbolism and politics, monarchical traditions and the royal sufficiency economy, the book will be of interest to a broad readership also outside academia. Essential reading for anyone interested in Thai politics and culture.
