About this site

TopicThailand.com is maintained by me, Newley Purnell. I’m an American journalist in Bangkok.

Given the complexity of Thailand’s political situation, I wanted to create a site that provides context and background information to help explain what’s happening here.

My inspiration was TheMoneyMeltdown, Matt Thompson‘s site about the global financial crisis.

You can reach me via email at newley AT gmail.com I welcome feedback, as this site remains a work in progress.
