Burma (Paperback)

Nicholas Ganz

-  

Currently in the grip of an oppressive military junta whose crimes against the people of the country have been condemned across the world, Burma has been much in the news on account of the recent people uprising in protest at the ruling regime (2007) and the devastating cyclone (2008). Despite this, much of what goes on remains unknown to travelers and would-be travelers. Over a lengthy period, Ganz and Jotow undertook a series of journeys through Burma to uncover the truth about life in Burma today, but also to document the beauty and wonderful cultural heritage of this troubled but remarkable country. Although areas of Burma remain inaccessible due to military restrictions and a lack of infrastructure, the authors reveal both the rich rewards that await the keen traveler seeking unspoilt landscapes and the remarkable warmth of the people they met along the way.
