BurmaMyanmar Read ´ 0 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
