The new edition of The Irrawaddy delivers Clive Parker’s very informative and critical account from the dust of Burma’s new capital, Naypyidaw. This is one of the first, and certainly the most extensive, eye-witness reports of this incredible development. It is accompanied by Aung Zaw’s articles that put the new capital in broader historical and political context. Both their efforts are superb – they are very much worth a look.
