Item description for Powers that Be : Pridi Banomyong through the Rise and Fall of Thai Democracy by Sulak Sivaraksa...

Judging from their broad similarities, one is easily led to the impression that Pridi and Sulak were from the start the best of friends, fighting shoulder to shoulder and back to back against the encircling injustice. In the courageous and illuminating personal essay in this volume Sulak suggests otherwise. He recounts in vivid details his discord and ultimate unity with Pridi. Sulak's essay not only provides us with a valuable glimpse of Pridi's ideas and personality but also of his won background and intellectual development (more precisely, of an important turning point in his intellectual growth). Above all Sulak, in this essay, intends to disperse the dark, malicious clouds that have blackened Pridi Banomyong's reputation, hoping that the Thai people will ultimately come to recognize and appreciate the vital contributions of this man.

Reviews - What do customers think about Powers that Be : Pridi Banomyong through the Rise and Fall of Thai Democracy?

Powers that Be:  Aug 26, 2000
Do not buy this book!

First it is made with poor quality products.

It is very short, out of the 84 pages only 44 pages comprise the actual text of the book. The first 20 pages are notes and introductions. 16 pages of appendixes, mostly of timelines. Then the last 4 pages are a list of other books the publisher sells.

I did find the information in the book interesting. However, the complete text of the main article has been posted on the internet by the same people. So you can read the text of the book for FREE!
