Many New Mandala readers will be interested in a short essay by Somsak Jeamteerasakul that discusses one of the enduring mysteries of Thailand’s 20th century history. In response, over at Fa Deow Gan they are discussing the death of King Ananda Mahidol. There are already 44 comments.

Somsak finishes his essay by stating that, in his view, it is possible to work out what happened:

…there was a limited space, only a limited number of people were involved and some have not been straight with the tuth – we can think it through and explain what happened.
