A book about Thailand’s former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra is displayed at the Puea Thai Party headquarters in Bangkok October 29, 2012. A cabinet reshuffle in Thailand has brought loyal allies of self-exiled Thaksin into the government led by his sister, consolidating his grip on power as he bides his time before making a serious effort to come home.
