Bangkok. Orchid Press. 2004. 2nd Edition. Stock ID #68313
Maps, illustrations, 192pp, appendix, bibliography, paperback. "When the author assumed a two year lecturing position in English language at a college in Mandalay in 1986, little did he realize that he was to witness the lead-up to one the most brutal political crackdowns in recent southeast Asian history. His highly personal account of life in Burma, the growth of unrest, the onset of massive pro-democracy rallies, and their ultimate failure after violent military suppression in 1988 is persented in heart-wrenching clarity. An appendix provides a translation of Mandalay students’ records of the ‘Sagiang Massacre’ in August, 1988." (When referring to this item please quote stockid 68313).
