|Plot Summary of The Sun Also Sets...America: A Novel of Amazing Thailand Versus the United States|
|"America has stretched its tentacles of power and influence throughout the world. Democracy American style will prevail worldwide in the view of the current President. Any other form of democracy is unthinkable...until Thailand decides to grasp onto the concept of Participatory Democracy. The late professor, Harlan Watt, had a dream. That dream was Participatory Democracy, a democracy for all the People, not just the elite and rich politicians. After the termination of Professor Watt by the CIA, the novelist Jake Jacobs takes the reins and writes another novel supporting the theory of Participatory Democracy. The President and the CIA...and the IMF combine their clandestine forces to eliminate the threat posed by the latest novel written by Jake and sponsored by his publisher, Mr. Naak. As the clandestine forces of American democratic imperialism gather strength, so does the opposing side. The Prime Minister of Thailand joins forces with the opposition to fight for freedom...and self-determination by a country which has never been colonized, and won't start now. The lives lost in Vietnam won't be lost in vain! Those who died for freedom in Vietnam and Thailand have drawn a line in the sand. America's exportation of an elitist democracy must stop with Iraq! Hence, amazing Thailand finds itself entangled in a world controversy not unlike that which confronted Saddam Hussein...a collision course in the making. "
