Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gambling, prostitution, drugs, arms trading, oil smuggling, and trafficking in people-these six illegal businesses are large and getting larger in Thailand. They distort the economy and victimize people. They are increasingly linked together through networks of protection and organized crime. They help to fund Thailand's corrosive "money politics" and to sustain corruption in the police. The authors argue that control of the illegal economy, especially through reform of the police, is vital for the development of a modern economy and functioning democracy.

Book News Annotation:

In their sequel to Corruption and Democracy in Thailand Thai economists describe the interlocking illegal industries and how they serve to maintain the political status quo and distort the economy. They argue that controlling the illegal economy through reform of the police is necessary for a modern economy and functioning economy to develop. Distributed in the US by University of Washington Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
