Pathways That Changed Myanmar by Mullen Matthew
In the midst of the political upheavals that engulfed Myanmar from 2010 to 2011 international attention was fixed upon the military regime and its dissident opponents. But away from the cameras a very different set of struggles were unfolding across the country. These struggles were manifested not as violent clashes but as everyday interactions involving taxi drivers community organizers farmers heads of domestic NGOs and many more. A product of five years' research during which the author conducted over five hundred ethnographic interviews across the country Pathways that Changed Myanmar provides a voice for those ordinary Burmese whose trials and aspirations went unheard and unnoticed during this pivotal moment in the nation's history.
