The Thai Government has imposed a state of emergency in Bangkok and its immediate surrounding for 60 days to end the demonstrations and blockade of the city aimed at bringing down Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. A veteran political observer in Bangkok analyses the historical and cultural factors underlying the protests ad discusses a possible solution to the imbroglio through the Thai Middle Way. This is the first part of an abridge version of the article first published by the Asia Times Online on 13 January 2014 as ‘History Shows Way out of Thai Conflict’.
