Overview

TV images and news reports of demonstrations, deaths, demands and chaos in Thailand make Moore's essays in Fear and Loathing in Bangkok a timely book. These are essays to read at this vital crossroads in Thai political development. The essays will deepen your understanding of what makes Thailand a special and unique country.

Politics can't be judged in isolation. Moore provides a context ranging from the petty local and foreign criminals and to the workings of the often quixotic law enforcement system. Murder, organized crime, greed and shadowy corporations reveal the half-hidden world of Thailand.

In an age of anger and fear, the culture of non-confrontation and smiles is going through a rocky ride. These essays take you along the bumpy road of ghosts, criminals, illegal migrants, and false prophets. The essays on crime fiction and on writing explore noir, chance, muses, and ideas-the ingredients of Moore's successful Vincent Calvino crime novel series.
