Burma/Myanmar “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” ― George OrwellI am rises and born Burmese around Military government era.The history we have been taught are not the history we had We used to pray god harder how we have been born poor We used to donate whenever tragedy happened,specially like 2008 nargis cyclone but we haven't prepare , warning and educated enough to prevent the natural disaster.There were lot of history I haven't know as Burmese and I am quiet astonish the facts of most resourceful country became the world poorest country in the world I wish most of Burmese specially young kids should read this book of where do we come from and what made us and how we build up our nation without repeating same failure we had last century 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 collegelevel essay written from materials found in the campus library Steinberg certainly has domain expertise, but this book came across as sterile and shallow. An very comprehensive look at Burma, in terms of culture, history, politics and its present transformation Because of the massive scope of this work, it is necessarily broad However it is the perfect starting point for anyone who wants to better understand the nature of the Burmese regime, and knows little or nothing about the country Great for the academic or nonacademic to use as a starting point on Burma. Good introduction to the political history of Burma/Myanmar 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! Good for the info, but the construction is all over the place. A good primer, very easy to follow But the forced optimism is offputting; you can feel the author himself doesn't quite believe his positive predictions for the country's future I felt that he could have just stayed neutral instead of putting up false optimism for his readers.
