Abstract

Extract:
After a period of unprecedented power, Thailand's absolute monarchy was overthrown in 1932. That was supposed to destroy the authority and influence of Thai monarchs and begin a new era for Thailand as a constitutionally-established democracy. Sixty-two years later, the King's influence and his support amongst the people is as strong as ever. However, Thailand's status as a political democracy seems far from certain.
