I have read this book in 2007.It is a good book to read because there are not much books to read about books on Burma that much.
An excellent, introductory work into moder Burma/Myanmar - its problems, its concerns, its woes and its fears.
Great history of Burma, up to the end of the 20th century.
The most comprehensive book about Burma I had read yet.
