Abstract : For the past two decades the United States has supported Thailand's efforts to develop a progressive and modern society. As the crisis in Indochina evolved during the 1960s, US military forces were deployed to Thailand both to support Thai efforts to resist subversion and insurgency, and to support combat operations in the Indochina nations. The Nixon Doctrine has declared a US intent to reduce the US presence in Asia and to rely more heavily upon the resources of allies for internal stability operations in the future. This report examines Thailand's progress during the 1960s and the prognosis for continued independence and development during the 1970s. (Modified author abstract)
