"Rosalind Russell has written an extraordinarily beautiful, comprehensive and compelling story of Burma in a remarkably human way - essential reading for anyone interested in understanding Burma today." Benedict Rogers, author of Burma: A Nation At the Crossroads.

"Burma's Spring is like nothing else written about Burma - compelling, charming and unique. No other book I know of has got under the sking of such a wide variety of Burmese, bringing them to life on the page." Peter Popham, author of The Lady and the Peacock: The Life of Aung San Suu Kyi.

Burma's Spring documents the struggles of ordinary people made extraordinary by circumstance. Rosalind Russell, a British journalist who came to live in burma with her family, witnessed a time of unprecedented change in a secretive country that had been locked under militay dictatorship for half a century.

Through her remarkable encounters as an undercover reporter, she unearthed the real-life stories of a rich array of characters and followed their fortunes over a tumultuous era of uprising, disaster and political reform.

From the world famous democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi to the broken-hearted domestic worker Mu Mu, a Buddhist monk to a punk, a palm reader to a girl band, these are stories of tragedy, reilience and hope-woven together in a vivid portrait of a land for so long hidden from view.
