The radical political and economic changes which were widely expected to follow from the fall of the Autarkic Regime of the Burma Socialist Program Party have not occurred. Rather, a reinvigorated military regime has installed itself in power in Myanmar (Burma) in the face of international and domestic opinion. That regime has now ruled for more than a decade despite international condemnation particularly in the United States and Europe. What has been the cause of Burma's continuing political efforts to bring about change proved unsuccessful? Why have the democratic forces within the country, led by the charismatic Daw Aung San Suu Kui, not forced the military to yield? This volume, written by an international group of experts on Burma's political economy, seeks to answer these questions with a view to ending the current deadlock in one of Asia's most talked about but least understood countries.
