About the Author
Culver S. Ladd, Ph.D. is an East Asian specialist in economic and political development with more than ten years residence in Thailand during the 1960s and 1970s while battles were being fought in Indochina. Though he was always teaching during those critical years he also was able to conduct fielded research across Thailand for major corporations interested in investing in Thailand. His 1972 study for General Motors Corporation brought their investment for production of Chevrolet cars and pick-up trucks now for Asian export, a major income earner for the nation.
