Thailand bans book criticising 2006 coup - Reuters, January 28, 2008
..."A Coup for the Rich", by political scientist Giles Ungphakorn, was ordered off the shelves at Thammasat University's bookstore last week, the only shop in Thailand that sold the 144-page book.
"The book has been banned and is under investigation concerning charges of lese majeste," police lieutenant Santi Piwtongkam told Reuters.
..."The first inkling I received was when Thammasat returned the unsold copies today," he told Reuters. "Given that the print run was almost sold out, it's a bit late to be cracking down".
