Reviews/Comments:
Long isolated by rigid military rule, Burma, or Myanmar, is one of the least known, significantly sized states in the world. Possessed of a rich cultural history yet facing a range of challenges to stability and growth, it has struck the imaginations of those concerned not only with geopolitical or trade affairs but also with poverty, health and human rights. Steinberg sheds light on this volatile state by exploring issues of authority and legitimacy in its politics, economics, social structure and culture since the popular uprising and military coup of 1988.
