Democracy in Retreat
December 27, 2012
Thai riot police detain an anti-government protester during a rally in Bangkok November 24, 2012. In “Democracy of Retreat”, published by the Council on Foreign Relations and Yale University Press, Joshua Kurlantzick examines the regression of democracy in Thailand, among other countries (Sukree Sukplang/Courtesy Reuters).
My new book, Democracy in Retreat—which examines the rollback of democracy in countries as varied as Thailand, Malaysia, and Russia—comes out in a few weeks. The reviews have started to come in, and John Berthelsen of Asia Sentinel, who has extensive experience covering Southeast Asian politics, offers his take. You can read the review in its entirety here.
