The King Never Smiles: A Biography of Thailand's Bhumibol Adulyadej

The King Never Smiles Presents the story of Thailand's Bhumibol Adulyadej's life and 60-year rule: how a Western-raised boy came to be seen by his people as a living Buddha; and how a king seen as beneficent and apolitical could in fact be so deeply political, autocratic, and even brutal. This book also provides an account of the king's youth and personal development. Full description
