Education for Leadership Development in Democratic Society

The book emphasises on the cultural and educational development of Thai society through a special training of prospective leadership in the bureaucracy, political parties and private sectors. An appropriate civic and political education curriculum should be introduced at both the college or university level and upper high school level. Consequently, teacher training on this purpose should be conducted by allocating some periods of time for political and historical studies.

This book is included a number of short essays as guidelines for further discussion. The contents are about; the new ideas or concepts of democracy by Francis Fukuyama; the problem of corruption in Thai bureaucracy and the suggestions of educational programmes for the potential leadership groups on this regard; the educational reforms and judicious democracy. The book comes to its close by the final remark by Professor Almond and Professor Verba on the importance of trust in the civic culture.
