The contemporary history of Burma under military dictatorship is full of accounts of unspeakable gross violations of human rights and democratic freedoms. While most other countries in the southeastern Asia region are now progressing along democratic paths of various kinds, the people of Burma have only experienced immense suffering in a national tragedy unseen elsewhere in recent history.

This book is primarily intended for all those people who wish to help restore and promote democracy in Burma in solidarity with the Burmese people who have been experiencing enormous sufferings under military rule.
