Pim Koetsawang
In Search of Sunlight - Burmese Migrant Workers in Thailand
Orchid Press: Bangkok 2000.
Paperback, 176 Seiten, 12 Abbildungen, 1 Karte.
ISBN 974-8304-92-2

Since the repressive military regime (SLORC - now SPDC) seized power from the former military government (BSPP) led by General Ne Win in Burma in 1988, the Burmese people have suffered increasingly untold repression and intolerable living conditions. For many, flight to Thailand has become a savior, not just to earn money on which to live, but merely to survive. On the Thai side of the border, some have faced almost equally repressive working and living conditions and an uncaring Thai government that has vacillated in its official attitude towards migrant workers. The journey to the new country too, is fraught with dangers, dishonesty and double-dealings, much of it from Thai and Burmese government officials and private entrepreneurs alike. The author has lived amongst and visited such people, both along the Thai/Burma border and in migrant communities close to Bangkok. She has documented their stories and their plight, and presents a harrowing picture of a powerless group caught between two evils, merely seeking to eke out a living under adverse conditions. The book exposes the maltreatment such people receive and explains their plight and motivations for making the move.

Julie Sell
Whispers at the Pagoda - Portraits of Modern Burma.
Orchid Press: Bangkok 1999.
Paperback, 150 Seiten, 12 s/w Fotos, Karte, Glossar.
ISBN 974-8304-36-1

Burma. The name evokes images of color and mystery, the alluring and forbidden. Cut off from the world for more than three decades by a repressive military government, Burma has only recently cracked its doors open to foreigners. American writer Julie Sell set out to discover this little-known country through encounters with the Burmese people. Despite significant potential risk to themselves, many people were willing to tell their remarkable stories. From the political circles of Rangoon to rebel outposts on the rugged frontier, from Buddhist monasteries to hilltribe villages, Whispers at the Pagoda: Portraits of Modern Burma offers a unique look inside a country that the world has nearly forgotten.

Mya Than Tint
On the Road to Mandalay - Portraits of Ordinary People.
Orchid Press: Bangkok 1995.
ISBN 974-8299-25-2

Inspired by Chicago journalist Stud Terkel's accounts of hopes and dreams of ordinary Americans, Rangoon-based writer Mya Than Tint introduces us to thirty-four of Burma's forty million 'ordinary people', the a-nya-ta-ra. As he travelled through Burma on literary lecture tours in the late 1980's, he encountered porters, sailors, fortune-tellers, waitresses, artists and petty criminals 'on the road to Mandalay'. This is Mya Than Tint's first major work to be translated into English.
