Download BurmaMyanmar ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free With mountain jungles and monsoon plains it is one of the world's largest producers of heroin It has a restive Buddhist monk population that has captured the attention of the west when it faced off against the regime And it recently experienced one of the worst natural disasters in modern times one effect of which was to lay bare the manifold injustices and cruelties of the regimeBurmaMyanmar What Everyone Needs to Know off. I was hoping for something that showed Burma up close but this book seems to have been written from afar digging little deeper than a college level essay written from materials found in the campus library Steinberg certainly has domain expertise but this book came across as sterile and shallow

Download BurmaMyanmar ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ers a concise synthesis of this forbidding yet fascinating country David Steinberg one of the world's eminent authorities on the region explains the current situation in detail yet contextualizes it in a wide ranging survey of Burmese history and culture Authoritative and balanced it will be standard work on Burma for the general reading public'What Everyone Needs to Know' is a registered trademark of Oxford University Pres. The best introductory book I ve found on BurmaMyanmar Clearly and concisely written and structured in a A style it s great for flicking through and finding information about specific issues in an extremely uick and accessible way Critically it also provides balanced opinions presenting information as much less black and white than many commentaries Instead it acknowledges the complications in society that drive and prevent progress without passing judgement explicitly If you re looking for in depth analysis this book won t satisfy but if you want to know the basics historical religious social cultural and political and why they matter internally regionally and globally today it is an excellent place to startThe suggested reading at the back of the book is a goldmine too for anyone looking to investigate deeper Would highly recommend

Download BurmaMyanmar ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free In the past two decades BurmaMyanmar has become a front page topic in newspapers across the world This former British colony has one of the most secretive corrupt and repressive regimes on the planet yet it houses a Nobel Peace Prize winner who is and in and out of house arrest It has an ancient civilization that is mostly unknown to Westerners yet it was an important and legendary theater in World War II A picturesue land. To be honest I knew nothing about Myanmar before I read this book I was able to get a feel for some of the problems that face the country The reason that I didn t rate this book higher is because I didn t like the style The author set forth uestions and then answered them The problem with this is that the answers were repetitive and I found myself becoming very bored So what did I learn Myanmar is very similar to North Korea in my estimation The military rules the nation and will not allow any other political entities Every aspect of the country is ruled by the military and it does not have any checks or balances by the judiciary or legislature Buddhism is the main religion yet the military has tight control over it The people are poor and social reform is very low on the government s list Myanmar is terrified of Foreign intervention and criticism and yet most worrisome is that they are friendly with China

    Free read BurmaMyanmar BurmaMyanmar (KINDLE) Good introduction to the political history of BurmaMyanmar Particularly fascinating to see the role and centrality of Buddhist philosophy or what it is interpreted to be in Burmese polity A big downside is constant repetition within and between chapters which takes away from narrative flow An update with a commentary on the current political regime would be a valuable addition
