A New York Times Critics' Top Book of 2019
A Foreign Affairs Best Book of 2020

An urgent book. Jennifer Szalai, New York Times

Thant Myint-U shows how the country's past shapes its recent and almost unbelievable attempt to create a new democracy in the heart of Asia, and helps to answer the big questions: Can this multicultural country of 55 million succeed? And what does Burma's story really tell us about the most critical issues of our time?
