Description

Thant Myint-U, award-winning writer, historian and conservationist, served for over a decade with the United Nations and was an advisor to the Burmese government during the early years of the transition from military dictatorship. 

The Hidden History of Burma is a fascinating insider’s account of a country at breaking point despite such hope for change following the end of the military dictatorship. This is essential reading for all those interested in this fragile state, its position between China and India and in broader political terms how to build democracy and an economy that serves its people well.
‘Thant Myint-U is the greatest living historian of Burma.’ William Dalrymple

‘A compelling account of modern Burma’s bloody history’ Amitav Ghosh
