Steinberg's book takes on the most politically sensitive issues that entrench the deeply divided politics of Burma/Myanmar today. His prose is fluid, his analysis compelling, and his conclusion provocative. The book is a testament to his fifty years of judicious, lucid, patient, and evenhanded work on Burma/Myanmar. --Dr. Mary P. Callahan, Assoc.Prof. University of Washington, Seattle
