Thaksin: (Second Edition, Expanded)
He made a fortune of two bilion US dollars in four years. He won four elections by landslides. He was overthrown by a coup and driven into exile. His opponents and supporters dressed themselves in red and yellow and fought battles on the streets.
To some, he is a visionary, even a revolutionary. To others, he is greedy, deceitful, deluded, dangerous.
This book was first published in 2004. Four new chapters provide a detailed account of the turmoil of Thai politics over the subsequent five years.
