Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Dissent in Burma, from the underground to the streets.

Jul 18 2015

The repression radicalized a whole population. The fact that every single element of society was politicized - the arts, agriculture, commerce - meant that every time you did something that was blatantly illegal, which most people had to do just to live their lives, you were in a way tripping into a form of resistance.

Journalist Delphine Schrank profiles life and resistance under military rule in Burma, from the economic and moral crimes of the ruling junta, to the creativity and resourcefulness of the freedom fighters pushing for democracy.

Delphine is author of the new book The Rebel of Rangoon: A Tale of Defiance and Deliverance in Burma from Public Affairs Books.
