Connors, Michael Kelly:
Democracy and National Identity in Thailand - hardcover

ISBN: 9780415272308

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: ROUTLEDGE CHAPMAN HALL], Table of contents: 1. Introduction: Talking Democracy 2. Making Democracy Mean Something 3. Before the Doctrine: From Constitutional Democracy to Thai-style Democracy 4. Developmental Democracy: Villages, Insurgency and Security 5. Delayed Liberalism, the General Will: the Doctrine Entrenched 6. Citizen King: Emobdying Thainess 7. New Times, New Constitution 8. Liberalism, Civil Society and New Projects of Subjection 9. Rethinking the Nation in Times of Crisis: Democracy, Civic Engagement and Community 10. Final Comments This book seeks to illuminate how Thai elites have used democracy as an instrument for order and discipline. Drawing on interviews, numerous Thai language sources, and critical theory, the author reveals a remarkable adaptation of the idea of democracy in the Thai context. Connors shows how elites have drawn on Western political theory to design projects to create modern citizens. He argues that it is possible to see the idea and practice of elite liberal democracy in Thailand, and elsewhere, as a key ideological resource in the project of securing hegemony over undisciplined populations. In this perspective the ideas of civil society, civic virtue, social capital and democracy itself are all part of the weaponry deployed in an effort to create 'good citizens', who act as guardians of the elite defined common good. Explores the process of democratization in Thailand from the overthrow of the monarchist state in the 1930s to the present day and examines this development institutionally and ideologically through key issues. 288 pages - 234 x 156 mm Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
