內容簡介

站在十字路口的緬甸,將如何面對遙遠而漫長的民主改革之路

緬甸歷經長達50年殘酷且壓迫的軍權統治,獨裁的政府被多方指控壓榨人權及對人民殘忍的虐待。近幾年緬甸終於逐漸走向民主,政府與大多數武裝反抗組織達成了初步的停火協議,公民社會獲得更大的空間,媒體享有更多的言論自由,政治人物也有了更多的機會。緬甸是東南亞融合最多不同民族的國家,少數民族總計全國人口的40%,聚居在緬甸資源最豐富的邊境一帶及主要貿易路線,佔國土面積60%。這些少數民族長久遭受政府不平等的對待,作者分析緬甸的未來發展,將取決於政府如何對待這群少數民族,為民族衝突找出一個解決方案,將有利於政府及國際社會的發展,唯有走向和平穩定的政治局面,緬甸才有真正走向民主的一天。

Benedict Rogers是一名作家及世界基督教團結會(Christian Solidarity Worldwide)的人權主張者。經常與《衛報》、《國際紐約時報》、《紐約時報》及《華爾街日報》合作撰寫多篇專欄。他也經常在牛津大學、白宮、美國國會及歐盟發表演說。他的著作有《A Land Without Evil》及《Than Shwe: Unmasking Burma's Tyrant》;德斯蒙德•杜圖(Archbishop Desmond Tutu)是1984年諾貝爾和平獎得獎人,以領導「南非真相與和解委員會」(South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission)促成南非轉型正義而聞名於世。

For more than 50 years, Burma has been ruled by a succession of military regimes which rank among the most oppressive dictatorships in the world. Accused of crimes against humanity, they have brutally mistreated their people.

Yet, in the last few years, the pace of change has been breathtaking. Much is now hoped for. However, Burma is one of the most ethnically diverse nations in Southeast Asia: there are roughly seven major ethnic groups living along its borders. They have a long history of conflict with the government and have been cruelly treated by the current regime. Their future affects the country as a whole, as Benedict Rogers explains. Drawing heavily on his many fact-finding visits both inside Burma and along its frontiers, he gives a unique appraisal of the current ethnic situation and its implications for the nation as a whole.

Wide-ranging, expertly researched, and full of brand new accounts of the courage and determination of the Burmese people, Burma: A Nation at the Crossroads explains the country's conflicted history, as well as its contemporary struggle for justice. Burma stands poised for freedom, or for further repression. No one can be sure. This fascinating and accessible book describes what is really happening inside this beautiful, secretive, and potentially prosperous country.
