Book of the Week

Odyssey Guide Myanmar

Refreshingly direct and engaging, this new edition of Caroline Courtauld’s richly illustrated and indispensable guide covers Burma’s culture, long history and religion with grace and authority. With many fine color maps (as is the custom with the excellent Odyssey series), hundreds of photographs and well-chosen literary excerpts.

In honor of the historic visit of the remarkable Burmese activist Aung San Suu Kyi to the United States, we highlight this guide along with other new and noteworthy books on Myanmar.
