A few months ago, my review of Phil Thornton’s Restless Souls – a book about Mae Sot and the Thai-Burma border – was published by The Oxonian Review of Books. The review is long and interpretative, and, fortunately, has much more detail than permitted in most “academic” review formats.

Other perspectives on this fascinating book come from Burma-watchers David Scott Mathieson (The Irrawaddy) and Bertil Lintner (Asia Times). As always, they are both well worth a read.
