The River of Lost Footsteps

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.
