From exuberant rallies on Bangkok's shopping streets, to tear-gas filled alleys echoing with gunshots, from democracy-debating farmers, to kitten-fostering Buddhist nuns, Unquiet Kingdom, is a gripping and lively portrait of Thailand's many faces, revealing the complexities of a country that is far more than its tranquil tourist-brochure stereotype. 
 
From 2003 to 2016, Nirmal Ghosh witnessed at close range an era of high-stakes power games, that at times, threatened to tear the country apart. He has interviewed scholars and generals, and sat down with fishermen, farmers, and prime ministers alike. Unquiet Kingdom is an account of what he experienced from his ringside seat. 

Nirmal Ghosh , whose work has won PANPA and SOPA awards, has been a foreign correspondent for The Straits Times since 1994. Based in Manila, New Delhi, and Bangkok, where he spent 13 years, first as Thailand Correspondent and then as Indochina Bureau Chief covering the region. He is currently United States bureau chief and is based in Washington, DC. He is a former president of the Foreign Correspondents' Association of the Philippines (Focap), and of our very own FCCT.
