By Benedict Rogers Grade BI for one have always felt that in fiction reviews the writer must come first he must precede the novel However I think in non fiction the content precedes the author it is greater and has endured travails than the author the author thus becomes just a mediumFor than 50 years Burma has been ruled by a succession of military regimes which rank among the most oppressive dictatorships in the world Accused of crimes against humanity they have brutally mistreated their peopleYet in the last couple of years and in spite of sham elections the pace of change has been breathtaking Much is now hoped for However Burma is one of the most ethnically diverse nations in SE Asia there are roughly seven major ethnic groups living along its borders They have a long history of conflict with the government and have been cruelly treated by the current regime Their future affects the country as a whole as Benedict Rogers explains Drawing heavily on his many fact finding visits both inside Burma and along its frontiers he gives a uniue appraisal of the current ethnic situation and its implications for the nation as a wholeWide ranging expertly 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 countryThis novel retraces the origins of the Burman crisis a nation once rich and prosperous and known as the rice bowl of the earth This has now deteriorated to a state where scarcity of food is a daily event The events have been narrated in a chronological manner to save the reader from getting muddled with details This book however is not a historical guide though it tries to be of Burma since independence it is meant to be an introduction to the events that have taken places and bring to fore the crimes against humanity and political unrestLike most novels based on recent history this too is biased not without much reason though and takes a political stand on some matters Burma not Myanmar and this does lead to or less a one sided account of affairs I don t know if this is a shortcoming or the author planned it in such a way and wanted no mistakes on the fact on which side he was typical Orwellian you are not with us you are against us philosophy but perhaps sometimes there are no sides and sometimes right and wrong good and evil are not as befuddled as they seem to beThe author s writing style is that of a journalist in nature Although he tries his level best to write as chronicler of events his language gives way to headline lines in the book and pieces of interviews juxtaposed to create an emotional impact Such things however make the book eminently readable unlike the usual drabs Eg Rise and Fall of the Third Reich historical books are but perhaps this is not history it is one man s opinion and for this reason alone the novel loses some credit However the novels succeeds with glory in the area it seems to be aiming at creating awareness and helping people know about the situationThe novel traces the events that take place in Burma after Independence the formation of the government the coup the false elections followed by the coup then the rigged elections followed by a rigged government still largely managed by the army Despite this the author calls it a Nation at Crossroads after witnessing the changes that Burma has undergone in the past year and Suu Kyi s proclamation that the prime minister Thein Sein is a good man However he doubts if the Prime Minister would live through theyear of reforms as there are serious considerations over his health and whether Burma would ever see the true light of democracy Would the countless killed ever get the peace that everyone is entitled toHere ends the review but it is events like this what happened in Burma what happened in Sierra Leone the Rwandan Genocide the Holocaust Stalin s rule and countless other examples of brutality and inhumanity to the extreme is not the violence of the leaders but the extreme degree of violence perpetrated by the people themselves on other people History does not have a record of Hitler Stalin or any other leader for that matter of having killed anyone However the two are responsible for the deaths of nearly 80 million people No person can kill this many the fact is that people agreed they bowed down to pressure they gave in easily and the human spirit we value so highly crumbled But all is not bleak as only in the darkest hours does the tiny bug seems the brightest There have been instances of extreme resistance be it in the form of Schindler in Holocaust or Rusesabagina s lone fight during Rwanda genocide or the countless acts of love courage and bravery executed when least expected What s alarming about the Burman scenario of brutal murder countless rapes innumerable victims was that is was all happening at a time we cherished free media I don t remember any news about it and talked about making the world a better place A cyclone killed a million people and displaced many most died from starvation fewer from cyclones The mere fact that this was allowed to happen shows that even in sympathy there was economic gain needed The UN was once again powerless as it is usually and it took nearly 6 months to reach to an agreement Most will agree when I say that the fact that those who survive did is because of the Superhuman effort put in by people who too could have sat and spectateTo conclude History teaches us many things but most importantly it teaches that there is always a choiceOriginally reviewed at

This is a book about a long suffering country named Burma or Myanmar For most of its life Burma is under the iron grip of military rule which is painfully inept at ruling yet succeeding in holding on to power through sheer brutality and utter ruthlessness From forced labour and child soldiering down to outright genocide Burmese military the Tatmadaw had done it all Many momentous events of Burma were explained in this book from the fall of Ne Win regime the failed ascendancy of Aung San Suu Kyi the Saffron Revolution the Cyclone Nargis right to the military regime s efforts to implement reform in kind of disciplined democracy What amazes me are the tenacity of Tatmadaw what they lacked in administrative competence they covered it with an amazing sense of political survival managing its own safety and its even independence from the new civilian government of Aung San Suu Kyi which started with so many promises yet ended up bending its knees to the whims of the military the solid proof being Suu Kyi s reluctance to stood against the ethnic persecution of the Rohingyas and other minority ethnic groups which was promoted by radical xenophobic buddhists and military My reaction after reading this book would be a feeling of numbness which is caused by being angry again and again at the Tatmadaw s atrocities and the world s ignorance of it while being amazed by its own ability to get away with it
