Romancing human rights : gender, intimacy, and power between Burma and the West

Author: Tamara C Ho

Summary:
When the world thinks of Burma, it is often in relation to Aung San Suu Kyi. But beyond her is another world, one that complicates the over determination of Burma as a pariah state and myths about the 'high status' of Southeast Asian women. Critiquing this fraught terrain, Tamara C. Ho maps 'Burmese women' as real and imagined figures across the twentieth century and into the twenty-first.
