review ↠ Burma author Benedict Rogers Tly researched and full of brand new accounts of the courage and determination of the Burmese people Burma a nation at the crossroads explains the country's conflicted history as well as its contemporary struggle for justice Burma stands poised for freedom or for further repression No one can be sure This fascinating and accessible book describes what is really happening inside this beautiful secretive and potentially prosperous countr.
