What Do we really know about Burma? and its history? and what can Burma’s past tell us about it present and even its future? This book by Thant Myint-U retraces the complex and turbulent story of Burma, from the time of Portuguese pirates to the sixty-year-old civil war that continues today, in an insightful narrative that portrays Burma’s rise and decline through the stories of the author’s family and others.
