Abstract:

Thailands administrative system was transformed from absolute monarchy to democracy in 1932. It appeared that the Thais just had the real democracy after the overthrow of military government in October 1973. Insurgent students led the brief revolt against military government that had ruled Thailand for many years. The new civilian government was named by the king. Such overthrow was unexpected, the Thais have not prepared themselves to live with the real democracy. Then came the problem, many people claimed their rights, requested what they needed. When bargaining failed, they engaged in strikes. Labor strikes spread almost all over the country. Though they are not in critical condition it appears to be the signal of a serious one in the future. Modified author abstract
