Dear friends: I have just launched a new site, TopicThailand.com. It’s designed to provide background info to help understand the complex political situation here.

You’ll find a summary of the latest news, a timeline of events since 2005, a who’s who breakdown, and plenty of links to resources for learning more.

The site is a work in progress, and I look forward to adding to it over time. (You can read more in the About section.)

I will, of course, still be blogging here at Newley.com. I see TopicThailand as a more static site that focuses on context and analysis.

Stay tuned. And thanks, as ever, for reading.
