Burma remains a land in deep crisis. The popular uprising in 1988 swept away 26 years of military rule under General Ne Win in name only. The National League for Democracy of Aung San Suu Kyi won a landslide victory in the 1990 election, but the military have remained in control, and Burma's future looks more problematic than ever. This book charts the rise of modern political parties, unravels the complexities of the long-running insurgencies waged by opposition groups, and explains how a fertile and potentially prosperous Asian country has become one of the world's poorest. This revised and updated edition of the standard work on 40 years of Burmese independence includes a new chapter on the 1990 elections and events since.
