520 1 |a "Lintner's account is interspersed with numerous anecdotes gleaned from personal research and interviews. Individuals are given features and personality in the complicated "jigsaw" of Burma's modern history. Beginning with the shock of Aung San's murder in 1947, Lintner retraces events from the 1920s that led to this disastrous event and continues his narrative up to the present, navigating the reader through webs of intrigue involving power, politics and drugs. Key players are the Rangoon government, the ethnic resistance, the Communists, the Kuomintang, and the US government."--Jacket.
