CHARACTERS ☆ The Rebel of Rangoon A Tale of Defiance and Deliverance in Burma Underground reporting among dissidents as they struggled to free their country From prison cells and safe houses The Rebel of Rangoon follows the inner life of Nway and his comrades to describe that journey revealing in the process how a movement of dissidents came into being how it almost died and how it pushed its government to crack apart and begin an irreversible process of political reform The result is a profoundly human exploration of daring and defiance and the power and meaning of freedom. Delphine Schrank provides a valuable contribution to the literature on Myanmar s political transformation She is a talented writer I think the book suffers from the typical western journalistic romanticization of Burma underground activists and the shadow of the military junta The characters are murky and their activities vague What are they doing running around passing notes Schrank never really makes clear what the opposition s teachers dissidents NLD organizers and recruiters etc role is nor how they contributed to the country s democratic breakthrough Moreover despite her professed intent to remove herself from the book she obviously places the author in fancy hotel scenes and upscale cafes interviewing the subjects I think part of the reason I am so critical of Schrank s book is because I spent a summer doing similar research on civil society and political activists in Yangon in 2010 and came away with a similarly murky picture Then again I never tried to sell a book off the experience In the end this is not a great historical piece I wish there were historical factota but a nicely written and rather rosy embellishment of democracy activists struggle in military dominated Myanmar Short Cycle Selling Beating Your Competitors in the Sales Race dissidents as they struggled to free their country From prison cells and safe houses The Rebel of Rangoon follows the inner life of Nway and his comrades to Break the Bipolar Cycle describe that journey revealing in the process how a movement of Innovate the Pixar Way dissidents came into being how it almost School for Startups died and how it pushed its government to crack apart and begin an irreversible process of political reform The result is a profoundly human exploration of All the Plants of the BibleText and Illustrations daring and Fucking My Gullible Sister in Her Virgin Pussy defiance and the power and meaning of freedom.
