Book Description

Mar 2001
This is a review of what the IMF did, who got hurt, what worked and what failed in the economic and social management of Thailand's economic crisis. It shows how political change got bound up with economic crisis, resulting in a new constitution, a seismic shift in the political landscape and greater asssertiveness by civil society. It examines how the economic turmoil changed the ways people reacted to political scandal, viewed their own society and imagined their future. The final chapters review the changes and lessons from 1997-2000 and speculate on how these changes will frame the future.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
4.0 out of 5 stars Superb! Sophisticated, insightful and concise. 26 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The book contains an excel analysis of the Thai crisis within economic, political, historical, and cultural contexts. A sense of patriotism can be felt; but the book is written in such a way that demonstrates a minimal bias. It is the book that I will recommend to my friends who would like to learn more about the crisis. During the past five years, studying in the U.S., I have read a number of articles on the issue and have written out academic papers (more of extended essays) about the crisis. But not until I have read this book, I have actually had a complete picture of the story.
