His writings have covered Myanmar policy, repression and opposition, interim judicial system, civil and economic power, and people.
Provides a strong magnifier of exactly what is going on in Myanmar....remarkable glimpses on almost every page. It is a tale to tell and an extract of lesson books for Myanmar and the rest of the underworld. Molen' s novel illuminates the realities of daily routine under armed domination and the tales he unveils are challenging the tales we have become used to.
In this often challenging time of top-down change in Myanmar, the textbook is a fresh recollection of the fact that change comes from different origins and has different meaning for each of us.
