Dr. Tamtai said When he was contacted to speak, he asked him what he wanted to say. If you look at today’s speakers and lecturers like Ajarn Chanwit They have a much deeper knowledge than their own. Therefore, I would like to summarize the broad picture of the study Apiwat Siam 2745 at present, are there any issues that scholars have studied? and must study in the future because not only the future that moves The past is in motion as well. Changes are progressing. By education, starting after 1957, interested people may say they are academics who graduated from the United States. Especially in the field of political science after 1957, everyone knows that it is a dictatorship era and an underdeveloped economy as well. So people go back to study what society has stepped into modern change. which is the change of year 2745
Dr Tamtai continued that, initially, people were pessimistic that there were some failures. brought to failure after 1957. What mistakes led to authoritarianism and underdevelopment? Studies are separate like that. Then the study 2745 began to expand. Counting to this day, 40 years, many things have changed. expanded knowledge From the work of academics like Prof. (Special) Dr. Chanwit knew about 1932 well and created a body of knowledge about 2745 in Thai society, which over the past 40 years, there has been a lot of work that has been increased. It can be divided into 2 broad issues: 1. .Works related to the problems of the old regime Before, we often highlighted who the Apiwat 1932 person was, where did the People’s Party come from? But this one studies what problems the old system has. People who were leaders of the old regime also felt that there were problems such as the works of Ajarn Nakarin Mektrairat, Chaiyan Ratchachakul, etc.
Dr. Tamtai said 2. Study the groups of people involved in 1932. In the later period, people were interested in studying other groups. affected and participated in 1932, such as education, civil servants, as well as people who disagreed with the revolution, such as the revolutionary opposition. The expansion made the picture 1932 not only in the People’s Party. but including other groups showing in different perspectives 3. The study of the effects of 1932 is not specific to the event. but study the policy of the People’s Party In what direction do you want to change society?
Dr. Tamtai also said that It’s important because people who rise up to change have a vision of the future, the ideals of society they want to create. It cannot be denied that this effort actually exists. Point out what he is trying to do, what is the image in our mind, and what are the policies? It is a great contribution that has changed the perception of the new generation in Thailand and ‘Historical consciousness’ will lead to future political changes.
“As I look at the thesis, both Thammasat University and many universities. There has been a lot of work studying the aftermath of 1932. This is a very exciting advance. It shows that Thai society has changed a lot. and the People’s Party is highly contributing. which people today may not know that it is a project of the People’s Party

In addition to the broader picture of education I would like to take this opportunity to thank Matichon and many other publishers. in building a sense of democracy to lead to changes in the future.” Dr. Tamtai said
