|Abstract:||The purpose of this paper is to investigate the concept of penetration [as a political phenomenon] and its relevance to United States-Thai relations from 1949 to 1968. Before any of the relevant data pertaining to the United States-Thai relations for the given period can be analyzed or categorized, a definition of terms is immediately necessary. Penetration as it will be used here, refers to that particular political phenomenon by which members of a given national society (U.S.) play an active role in exerting influence upon another national society (Thailand). United States’ penetration, as it applies to Thailand, shall be interpreted as the effect produced by official and unofficial Americans on the Thai political system through persuasion and example without the use of force or direct control.|
