Knights of the Realm: Thailand's Military and Police, Then and Now

Edited by Paul Chambers, Contributors Arisa Ratanapinsiri, Eric Haanstad, Napisa Waitoolkiat, Srisompob Jitpiromsri and Paul Chambers

How could one understand Thai politics without first understanding the role of the military and police in Thailand. Since the 1932 revolution against royal absolute power, the country has suffered multiple military coups. Knights of the Realm is an attempt to place these forces in perspective both historically and in their present day activities.

Among the questions addressed in this volume are:

  • How did the military and police become what they are today?
  • How are they organized?
  • How do they handle internal and border security?
  • How do they handle counter insurgency in the Muslim south?
  • What is their political role today and what might it become in the future?
  • What differences are there in military regarding Thaksin Shinawatra?
  • Who's who in the military and police?

It then attempts to answer the big question of how the military and police can be bought under the control of civilian governments?
