FREE READ BurmaMyanmar CHARACTERS BurmaMyanmar õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB READ í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ David I. Steinberg In the past two decades BurmaMyanmar has become a front page topic in newspapers across the world This former British colony has one of the most secretive corrupt and repressive regimes on the planet yet it houses a Nobel Peace Prize winner who is and in and out of house arrest It has an ancient civilization that is mostly unknown to Westerners yet it was an important and legendary theater in World War II A picturesue land. To be honest I knew nothing about Myanmar before I read this book I was able to get a feel for some of the problems that face the country The reason that I didn t rate this book higher is because I didn t like the style The author set forth uestions and then answered them The problem with this is that the answers were repetitive and I found myself becoming very bored So what did I learn Myanmar is very similar to North Korea in my estimation The military rules the nation and will not allow any other political entities Every aspect of the country is ruled by the military and it does not have any checks or balances by the judiciary or legislature Buddhism is the main religion yet the military has tight control over it The people are poor and social reform is very low on the government s list Myanmar is terrified of Foreign intervention and criticism and yet most worrisome is that they are friendly with China
