Former Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand Direk Jayanama provides a unique, first-hand account of his country's diplomatic, military, and economic history between 1938 and 1948. Based largely on diaries that he kept at the time, Professor Direk's 1967 memoirs, now translated into English, offer an extraordinary range and depth unsurpassed by the many other official Thai records and memoirs written by government officials of this period. These detailed and fascinating memoirs include additional chapters by key Free Thai members including Puey Ungphakorn, as well as extensive appendixes containing the text of international treaties and agreements to which Thailand was signatory.
