Offers information on development assistance to Myanmar, economic data and analysis, the latest news and publications, and regional initiatives. The history of Myanmar has been turbulent and bloody. Stories about the political upheaval in Myanmar YANGON - Like many adults in Myanmar in the end of the 1980', Kyaw Zwa Moe has seen and been directly implicated in drastic changes in the country's policies. Kyaw Zwa Moe, an experienced Myanmar specialist and experienced Swede Bertil Linter, who has known him for many years, recently reminded us that he has earned a good name for dealing with Myanmar with care and sensitivity. Kyaw Zwa Moe differs from many others who have been in jail and custody, his dedication to the documentation and memory of his torture, together with the development of Myanmar's policy and the life of the many individuals he met along the Thai/Myanmar frontier.

Its coverage is continuing in the midst of the country's present process of democratisation.

It is a reflective work on Myanmar's unending fight for democratization and is believed to be a historic landmark on the country's policies, past and present, as well as a source of creativity with a literary quality. "While[ the stories] have been wrote over many years, they can link you to what and where Myanmar is today.

They''re intended for locals and foreigners who want to know more about the country's policies,'' he said. "An education in the midst of an incomplete journey to democratization. "Whilst the Myanmar authorities today and in recent years are evident in every history, the textbook is not a lecture and lecture on" ismsen" and democracies.

Rather, it is a compilation of reports illustrating the hard reality of a detainee's behind prisoners' jails and confronting you with fugitives, migrants, ethnical forces, drugs abusers, sexual slaves and other inhabitants of frontier cities in Thailand and China. On the pages of this volume you will learn first-hand about the " long-necked " Panglong woman who are exhibited in Thai public gardens and are dreaming of fleeing and learning; a middle-aged Karen pair who killed six midage kids on their decades-long getaway from conflicts and clung to a breakable peacefulness; an alleged politician who described his story; an ageing former rider who took General Aung San to his historical Panglong peak in 1947; and many others.

For example, the sensitive manoeuvre that characterizes Naypyitaw's politics, where the de facto effort of State Councillor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to close a de facto deed with the country's mighty army on almost every front could embody Myanmar's never-ending fight for democratization.

Presented on Tuesday by members of the global embassy, policy watchers and reporters, Ma Thida (Sanchaung) said that she appreciates the work. "Without knowing about the past there can be no better way forward. "That is why we must study every history of our land, not only about exiled persons and those in politics, but also from others, with honesty," said the novelist, who also wrote a work about her imprisonment years.

The Cell, Exile and The New Burma" is about Myanmar and its peoples, and how they have been influenced by their country's policies since 1988. Thant Myint-U, in his preface, stresses that we are at a crucial point in Myanmar's story. This is therefore a time to reflect and self-observe, to reassess the country's recent past and deep past, and to try to look at its development from as many different angles as possible.

"That is why the release of Kyaw Zwa Moe's novel is very welcome and should be interesting to anyone trying to get a better feel for Burma today in all its beautiful and often terrifying complexity," he states. It is now available in the big bookshops in Yangon.
