Abstract:

"An important element in the Thai success story during the boom years of the late 1980s and early 1990s was the flourishing and politically interventionist print media. Politics and the Press in Thailand is the first book in English to examine the tangled web of relationships linking newspaper owners, editors, columnists and reporters, with leading politicians and power-holders." "Duncan McCargo was granted access to the editorial meetings and newsrooms of Thailand's leading newspapers. Drawing on numerous interviews and extensive observation, this book unpacks the contradictions and dichotomies that underlie political coverage in the Thai language press."--BOOK JACKET.
