Item description for King of Thailand In World Focu by Multiple Authors...
The King of Thailand in World Focus: Articles and images from the international press 19462006 is a comprehensive account of the worlds longest reigning living monarch viewed through the eyes of foreign media newspapers, magazines, wire services and photographers. This new, updated edition, published in conjunction with the Kings 80th birthday, documents in some detail the intriguing story of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, from his birth and relatively carefree childhood spent abroad, to tragedy and sudden responsibility, through his formative years amidst domestic and regional turbulence, into his maturity as a champion of the have-nots and a king much admired and loved by his people. This is also a glimpse into the role of the king during critical moments in the countrys political history. He remains perhaps one of the last monarchs in the world to wield real political influence, and remarkably, he does so not through the force of law, but through the tremendous trust and affection of his people.
