Living Silence in Burma: Surviving under Military Rule Best Sellers Rank : #1

  • 4 years ago
This new, thoroughly updated, edition of Christina Fink?s acclaimed account gives powerful insights into the life of ordinary Burmese people. Through extensive interviews conducted inside and outside the country she builds a richly textured picture of how people cope with their daily life -- and some innovative forms of resistance. In recent years, international engagement with Burma has grown. Increasing numbers of Burmese live and work abroad. Can the regime sustain itself in the face of the economic deterioration at home? The brutal repression of demonstrations in 2007 was a desperate response to a political opposition better informed and more united than ever before. This is a book anyone with an interest in Burma needs to read.
