Since Burma's current military rulers took power in 1989, this pivotal, troubled, and bitterly divided Southeast Asian nation has rejected important opportunities for political and economic liberalization. This book examines the origins and consequences of Burma's current policies from military, political, social, and economic perspectives--and analyzes Burma's stand with regard to the United States and other Western countries.
