Contested Legitimacies in Myanmar
David I. Steinberg

Foreword by Robert A. Scalapino

"[David I.] Steinberg's book takes on the most politically sensitive issues that entrench the deeply divided politics of Burma/Myanmar today. His prose is fluid, his analysis compelling, and his conclusion provocative. Turmoil in Burma is a testament to Steinberg's fifty years of judicious, lucid, patient, and evenhanded work on Burma/Myanmar."
---Dr. Mary P. Callahan, Associate Professor, University of Washington, Seattle
