New Mandala readers who are following arguments about Thailand’s military backed constitution may find much food for thought in a recent article by Thongchai Winichakul. It has been published by Krungthep Turakij and is available from their website.

Thongchai begins by reflecting that “most people are probably getting bored with politics…” and ends with cautionary words about the implications of accepting the new constitution. His analysis is certainly worth a read.
