The King of Thailand in World Focus
Now available in soft cover! Only Baht 270 for FCCT members
The FCCT's sell-out publishing success, The King of Thailand in World Focus, a 280-page collection of articles and images
from the international press on the life and reign of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX, is now available in a
new, popularly priced soft-cover edition. In addition to making for fascinating reading, the book is the only comprehensive
reference work on the current reign as reported over the years by correspondents, journalists and photographers in magazines
and newspapers around the world
This large-format, full-color book is identical to the hard-bound third edition which sold out late last year, but with a
stiff, varnished art-card cover, and priced to be easy on the wallet. It's available through the FCCT office and at Asia
Books around town for the cover price of only Baht 300. FCCT members can get a copy through the FCCT office only for just
Baht 270, on presentation of your current membership card.
Don't miss out. Get your copy of this unique publication today!
Attending FCCT Programs
How do you keep up with all the FCCT programs?
Join FCCT and receive e-mails whenever new programs are added. Because news changes fast, FCCT sometimes
schedules timely programs on short notice.
FCCT members receive e-mails with "late-breaking news" about programs.
For Correspondents Only?
is not just for correspondents-in fact, most of our members are not news people.
A past FCCT
president even came up with the slogan, "You don't have to be foreign and you don't have to be a
correspondent". We are a very diverse club and welcome all.
