Department of Political and Social Change Visiting Fellow, Trevor Wilson, has released a new book – Eyewitness to early reform in Myanmar.

Published by ANU Press, the book provides an ‘on the ground’ account of the sweeping change carried out by a reform-minded faction within the country’s long-ruling military – adjustments that commenced in 1999 with modest experiments, and which eventually led to historic elections in November 2015.

In his insightful account, Trevor Wilson, who served as Australian Ambassador to Myanmar from 2000 to 2003, and who has been a close observer of the country ever since, provides important details on what for too long has been a misunderstood chapter in Myanmar’s history. Read more about the book.

Please join us for drinks and canapes after.

Please note that the book will be available for purchase at the launch.

If you are unable to attend, Eye witness to early reform in Myanmar is available as a free download from ANU Press, or for A$35.00 as a print version. Find out more.
